Go Retro with Flying Toasters

Anyone who is old enough to remember the ‘After Dark’ series of screensavers for their Apple Mac or Windows PC will recognise the iconic Flying Toasters screensaver.  One of the features of this famous screensaver was that users could adjust the colour or darkness of the toast.

XDA forum member UKLooney has taken this piece of nostalgia and re-packaged it into a Live Wallpaper for Android device owners!

Instead of adjusting the darkness of the toast, rather, UKLooney has given users the option to vary the number of toasters, velocity, size and also the background colour and image.

To enjoy your own slice of toast, download Flying Toast free from the Market, or visit the forum thread to download the apk directly.

The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...

Do ISPs Abuse Their Power?

Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
