Android HDPI WP7 Layout

I guess even the industry’s best has a little envy for the new comer. Android users can now enjoy a Kin/WP7 like layout on their devices thanks to XDA member newone757, who made this new guide for people that have the time to follow it. This is new and was just released last week and is rather easy to follow.

Instructions:::
Using Launcher Pro Plus or ADW Launcher
and
Desktop Visualizer
For Horizontal Widgets, Select the 4×1 Desktop Visualizer widget, load your 3×1 png and shortcut, and then resize it to 3×1 when placed on the homescreen
For vertical Widgets its straightforward. Widget size is 1×2.
If you want the dock set it in launcher pro and then use a transparent icon for the launcher in the middle. Transparent Icon not included

If those few steps look simple to you, then head over to the thread and get the rest of the guide.

ITaaS – Identity Theft as a Service with FileThis

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....

Do You Prefer Physical or on Screen Buttons?

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
