Control Your Windows 6.5.x X Button

Still in the beta stages the application created by XDA’s own xtep is an amazing add-on to your Windows Mobile 6.5.x device.  If you, like me, are a little upset that Microsoft has taken the memory management control into their own hands then this is definitely worth taking a look at.  Not only is the control of the X button yours again, but so are some other very useful features.  And with the help of scarecrow420 it now has a nice User Interface.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

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...

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...
