Some people are just really enthusiastic about showing their burning passion for a certain cartoon, anime, TV series, or movie. Certain people fill their room with official merchandise while others launch their careers as writers or artists by writing or drawing their favorite characters in every single one of their pieces.

Update- We have just launched the best Android tablets of 2013 series.
The Google Nexus 7 is one of the best Android tablets of the year and definitely a tough adversary for this year’s Kindle Fire versions. At the same time, the device is not an iPad-killer, it’s not even intended to be one, and, moreover, it may do a lot more harm within the Android tablet ecosystems, as other OEMs will not be able to replicate Google’s current tablet strategy.
The Nexus 7 is an affordable device that packs quite a punch under the hood and is able to offer users access to Google’s latest operating system, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, right out of the [...]
In an attempt to make its Google Play movie rentals service more popular with the Android crowd, Google released a YouTube video in which it demoed the simple functionality of its cloud-based movie streaming service. The short 1-minute video explains how movie watching via Google Play works, and why Android tablet owners should be excited.

And what better way to make people remember the Google Play movie rentals service than by trying to come up with a viral [...]

A lot of people like to download stuff from the Internet using torrents or Internet download managers because even if you turn your computer off, you can just pause your download and resume downloading the next time you open your PC. This is an advantage especially if you are downloading a large file, which often takes much time to download. Instead of leaving your computer on for a long time just to finish your file download, you can just pause the download and resume it later.
Now, this convenience can now also be enjoyed by Android users. An application called aDownloader is a torrent application for Android–and it supports resumable downloading, which means [...]
Piracy has been one of the big issues of the Internet ever since megabyte-speed lines and smaller video files were developed. Music and movies are the usual targets for piracy – mostly because they’re really expensive when it comes down to it. Which is why downloads are at an all-time high and media company profits are getting lower.
One of the ways that the industry has tried to combat this is to sue a lot of people. However, that just made the studios more unpopular and encouraged media pirates everywhere. However, some of them seemed to have learned their lesson. Digital distribution is the wave of the future and a lot of companies have gone on the bandwagon [...]
Everyone likes free stuff – especially free entertainment. That’s why you see the popularity of piracy after all. Well, free movies are coming to the Android platform and it’s piracy-free. We already know about Netflix’s excellent app that provides access to their service, while Google has its own Movie service. There’s a third entry into the ring though. Crackle, is a movie- and TV-watching service that hasn’t been getting the attention they deserved. To change that, the company has launched v2.0 of its Android app – that gives you access to a wide selection of free movies and TV shows.
Well, here’s a bit of trouble. Everyone who really wants to get something done on their Android machine knows that rooting is the way to go. This is mostly because it opens up the innards of the system to our optimizing touch. No more bloatware or crapware on it – just the pure streamlined operation of an operating system that’s like a tuned engine. Of course, rooting isn’t exactly legal – it’s in one of those legal gray areas that make our lives easy. So, of course, there are some consequences.
One of those consequences just recently got announced. Google, the guys behind Android and the Android [...]
