Alternative Wait Cursors for Windows Mobile
Those of you who own a non-Snapdragon powered device will be overly popular with one of Windows Mobile’s most-seen animations: the wait cursor. When you’re running your favourite applications or simply trying to send a text message, you know it’s not good news if you see the rotating coloured orbs.

Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
