Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
Buuf Full Theme for WM
Here’s a funny and original theme for your Windows Mobile device. XDA member sponge_worthy presents his development based on Buuf theme for Cookie Home Tab 2 that includes a set of icons for the task bar, a skin for the dialer and a Sense icons package. This theme is like a cartoon with a great design that will completely change and renew the look of your device. If you have kids, beware as this work will be loved by them.
The developer has tested it on a Rhodium (portrait mode only) but it works on VGA devices as well.
Please leave feed back.

I have spent some considerable time to incorporate a Buuf theme on my phone and be able to switch between my Black and Blue Grill theme and this one. I like to have all my icons consistent everywhere I frequent my device. So I’ve either skinned or found an adequate one for the following places: Taskbar, WM 6.5.x theme, Phone Canvas, Thumbcal, psShutXP, S2U2, Notifcation screen, Sense 2.5, CHT2, Action Screen, and Resco Explorer. I think it is looking pretty good now.
I first will give create the the DrSrF team from this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=683771 for starting up the Buuf theme for WM. It looks like in the thread that they have abandoned the project though.
I also want to thank Paul Davey aka mattahan for creating the Buuf icons and sharing them here – http://mattahan.deviantart.com/gallery/
I also have used tsowen battery icons because they seemed to match this theme pretty well.

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
