In an ideal world, your Android's apps, their settings, and your system settings would automatically back up to the cloud so that if you lost your phone, bought a new one, or installed a new custom ROM, setting up a fresh device with everything in place would be a piece of cake. The good news: This utopian Android backup actually is possible. Here's how to set it up. We back up our computers religiously, but our phones are often neglected. There are tons of situations in which you may want to have your phone backed up. Perhaps you uninstalled an app and deleted its settings, only to decide that you want it back.

As you may well know by now, Samsung launched a whole bunch o' tablets at CES this week, and by a bunch, I mean 4. The new Tab Pro 8.5, 10.1, and 12.2, and the new Note Pro 12.2. Four tablets, three sizes, two processors (Exynos 5 Octa or Snapdragon 800), and one screen resolution (2560x1600). These are the first high-end tablets Samsung has produced for a couple of years (aside from the Nexus 10, of course), and it seems like after two budget-minded generations of Galaxy Tabs, they're finally ready to give the more expensive end of the market a try again.

Good article, but I think we're still a couple of years away from this being feasible en masse. Even when the NFC technology is built into phones, retailers will be much slower in updating their POS systems to support it. Plus, if your phone battery dies, you're kinda screwed. I know that's the reason for carrying the one credit card, but that's only partially helpful. Until the iPhone can hold a charge for at least 12 hours WITH frequent usage, this will continue to be an issue.

1-Click Cleaner Quickly Cleans Up Your Android Phone Nope. I am not referring to cleaning up your virus-infected phone, but if you are looking to clean up your cache and history to free up the storage space and system resources, 1-Click Cleaner allows you to do so easily. Regardless how big the storage space you have in your Android phone, if you do not maintain it, plenty of useless stuff (such as cache, app history, leftover files and folders after you have deleted the app etc) will pile up and affect the performance of your phone. If you have installed and uninstalled plenty of apps, it can be troublesome and difficult for you to go into your phone internal system to delete every single leftover and useless file. 1-Click Cleaner aims to make that process a breeze. After you have installed 1-Click Cleaner, all you need to one click (or should I say, one tap) to clean up your system.
