XDA's decision to split their Dev forums was a shitty idea and today's events with cataclysm only underscore it. Creating a division between "original work" and "unoriginal work" only served to piss of teams and confuse users.

Atlantis's choice to stop developing is, of course, his decision, and while I think it's a bit silly I also understand needing to move on from a project. But I DO think that he should release his code. Partly to prove his point, but also because cataclysm was a unique way to go about doing things - you flashed it over stock - that I think should be out there for some other dev to play with.

Either way... Fucking dev drama, man. It never ends.

Nexus 5x and 6p owners: Choetech recently sent me one of their chargers and cables to review. After using both their wall charger and A-to-C cables for a few weeks, I can tell you they're great. Inexpensive, and no issues at all. My OEM charger slows my 5x to a crawl every time I use it, but this one does not. So its been my primary charger since I got it. The A-C cables are fully complaint as well, which is critical. That's the main reason I'm sharing this with the PN community. Before it was common knowledge, I used a cable from another company and blew out a USB port on my macbook. Really don't want that to happen to anyone else. So its definitely worth picking up. I've added an amazon link, no referrall code - I'm not trying to make any money off this or anything, it just works well and that's hard to find in USB C products at this point.

Personally I think these things look like hot buttered ass but since +Patrick Campanale​ just helped me sell my smart watch, I'm gonna share this one.

Thinking of selling my mint (some wear on the leather strap from normal use) silver moto 360 gen 1, with external lugs so you can use and watch strap. Anyone interested? Comes with box and all that stuff of course. Without ambient enabled it easily does a day's battery.

Here's the deal, folks. I co-founded and ran Carbon, and the main reason I don't do it anymore is it's a hell of a lot of work. It's like a second job. I tell you this so you understand that I know what I'm talking about.

It's long hours of looking at device trees, merging commits, fixing that stupid thing that git just did for no good reason, building and flashing tests, and debugging things that should work but don't. It's keeping up on forum posts for every single build you use, and trying to figure out which user issues should be addressed and which ones are due to problems with the processor that the user was born with. It's people saying "well I'd use your rom if you just make this one change for me."

And then for all of that people assume that you're just rolling in donation money. Believe me when I say that even when you're very successful and have tens of thousands of users and downloads per day, donations add up to nearly nothing.

I don't know about the other devices, but this is the best thing going on the 5x, period. Nate's doing great work. Throw him some cash. Do it right now. Broke? Find three or four bucks. Not broke? Toss him ten bucks. Hell, it's like 20 bucks to go see a movie, and I got just as excited about having working Android Pay as I did seeing Darth Emo on the big screen. (Just kidding TFA fans, I really liked the movie. Please put down your torches and pitchforks.) You absolutely do not need a paypal account, either. It works with regular old credit and debit cards.

The number one reason you should donate? He never asks, never complains if he doesn't get them. He does it for the love of Android. That gets my dollars flowing.

PayPal is the safer, easier way to pay online without revealing your credit card number.

I'm just a noob starting out myself and I can say it does take up a lot of your time but it's addictive. I stayed up till 4 a.m. this morning trying to get a ROM to build for angler. Let's just say I threw in the towel for now. I may attempt again in a few days, lol.

Pretty unhappy with +Google right now. I bought the 5x thinking it would be fantastic like all the other Nexus devices I've owned. Instead, it's laggier by the day, and I'm stuck with it.

Their support staff has been incredibly unhelpful, to boot. I never expected the 5x to be as powerful as the 6p, but I didn't expect it to have worse performance than the 5 did, either.

Still day 1, but so far the battery life on my moto 360 '14 is reminiscent of the battery life my galaxy nexus used to have.
