  • Adobe Flash Player Android Lollipop Dec 29 2014
    Adobe Flash Player Android Lollipop: At one time, Android fully supported adobe flash player. However, official support ended by the time KitKat was released (though there were still a few hacks that you could use to get it). Of course, HTML5 video players are the preferred option, but unfortunately, there are some porn sites that still rely heavily on adobe flash content. Well, if you have an Android device running Lollipop you can now access the flash content once more.

  • Tor for Android Dec 21 2014

To keep it brief, Tor is a mesh of proxy servers that bounces your IP to different locations across the globe.

While this is a step in the right direction (and should have been included with Chrome OS from the very beginning, but I digress) there are only four official android apps available for Chrome OS (Evernote, Vine, Sight Words, Duolingo).

  • Android Lock Screen Notifications Sep 03 2014
    If you’re looking for a way to get notifications on your lock screen, then check out this video: Android Lock Screen Notifications. Using an app called echo Lockscreen, you can get notifications on your device’s lock screen. It also turns on your screen when you get a notification such as a text message; I think that’s one of the major advantages to this app. Give it a try and tell me what you think about it.

Yes, a sibling could snoop into your phone and take a look at those risque pictures you have saved or see who you have been texting, but that might not be the absolute worst security breach to deal with. Luckily, Android Lollipop adds a trusted device feature that allows you to automatically disable your lock screen if you are on a trusted wifi network or connected to a trusted Bluetooth device.

  • Windows XP on Android Jul 19 2014
    Yes Virginia, you can run Windows XP on your Android device. What once took cutting edge hardware to boot, can now work on your typical Android smartphone.

One word, Bochs. Bochs is an app that can emulate practically any 32 bit operating system.

  • Install Ubuntu on Chromebook Jul 10 2014
    Everyone has their own opinion of Chrome OS. Some find it extremely useful and others think it’s complete garbage. While I would consider myself part of the former group, I can admit that there are places where Chrome OS falls short of a desktop operating system. For exampling, I’m not able to open a java compiler on Chrome OS or use Wine to play Steam games. However, you can do all these things on Linux.

  • How to Root Any Android Device Jul 07 2014

George Hortz, a hacker made famous by his iOS jailbreaks and PlayStation hacks has managed to root the Verizon Galaxy S5. So why should you care? Well, he used a recently discovered exploit found in all Linux kernels that were built prior to June 3rd. So in theory (and in practice) his app should work on any Android device that has a kernel build date prior to June 3rd.
