The Cyanogenmod project -- a free, open version of Android with lots of great features that Google can't or won't add to the official version -- has a new release out, 10.1.3. The new release includes CM Account, a way of finding lost phones and wiping them that -- unlike similar functions in Android and Ios -- does not allow the company itself to keep track of your device or erase it.
We are pushing the buttons and pulling the levers necessary to get 10.1.3 out the door and end the release candidate phase. Builds will be hitting the mirrors throughout tonight. As a reminder, these are built in (mostly) alphabetical order based on device code name.
We have also enabled the CM Account functionality for these builds, previously only found in 10.2 nightlies.
This is the final planned release for the 10.1 code branch, as we focus our efforts on CM 10.2 and eventually, Android 4.4 'KitKat'.

The battery blows, you spill water or coffee all over the place, or it just shuts down with no explanation, and you’re screwed. […]
You travel around a lot. It might be that jet set life from New York to LA to London to Tokyo, or it might be back and forth from the coffee shop to the office, or from the kitchen to the couch. Any which way, you’re mobile and that’s the way to live. When you […]
It’s 2016 and we like our technology really small. Our phones fit in our pockets, our remotes are lighter than ever, and even our cars seem to be shrinking. So your new drone shouldn’t be an exception. This Axis VIDIUS Drone is 21% off right now and it’s so little, your biggest problem won’t be […]
