How to stop Twitter from tracking what other apps you use on iPhone or Android
Twitter is about to become more annoying for some users, as the company will start tracking what other mobile apps iOS and Android owners are using in a push to better profile users, and thus improve its targeted advertising business. FROM EARLIER: Twitter goes Facebook by injecting foreign content into your stream As Re/code reports, the feature is opt-out, meaning that as soon as the official Twitter app for iPhone or Android is installed, it’ll start collecting data until you specifically opt out of it. Before sending any data to Twitter, the app will display a prompt, telling the user about the feature. The move should help Twitter improve content recommendations and make Twitter more interesting for new users — instead

2014’s biggest shocker: Vinyl records are making a huge comeback
There have been signs of revival in the vinyl record scene for quite some time.

How one man built the awesome Chromecast accessory Google should have made
Chromecast is a very cool way to stream content from your smartphone or PC onto your television. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a remote control that you can use to manage the device from your couch. GigaOM brings us the story of Chromecast fan Jeff Bower, who decided to take matters into his own hands and build his own remote control to use with Google’s popular streaming USB stick. Bower’s remote was built around a Raspberry Pi model B that he hooked up to a case and buttons using connector wires. The total bill of goods for the remote was a little more than $55, the majority of which went toward buying the Raspberry Pi, which Bower also programmed to

Those that use it probably only do so for a few seconds once or twice a month. That being the case, it's not a big deal if the app doesn't look good. But that doesn't mean that it can't, right?

Root Explorer 3.3 Update Adds SD Card Write Capability Without Root In Lollipop
Root Explorer is one of those apps that has been on each and every one of my Android devices for years, and part of the reason why is that developer Speed Software has kept it relevant with near-constant useful updates. The latest, version 3.3, takes advantage of the revised SD card management on Android 5.0. Those with Lollipop devices can once again write to an external SD card even without root.

That said, Ubisoft has made a number of blunders recently that show it has definite ambitions for taking EA’s crown as the world’s most hated gaming publisher. RELATED: These are the most ridiculous Assassin’s Creed Unity glitches Like a lot of game publishers this year, Ubisoft has released several massively hyped games that have generally failed to live up to expectations, most notably Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed Unity. But what has set Ubisoft apart has been its use of review embargoes to keep potential bad news about its games down until after gamers have
