Spruce up Your Restarts with 81 Fantastic Boot Animations

If you’re anything like I am, you dread the occasional moments when you realize that you must restart your device in order to accomplish some certain task. Be it a ROM flash, a cache flush, or simply a restart because your device that has been on for two consecutive months is starting to feel a little slow, there are various reasons that would mandate one to perform a system shutdown.

Thankfully, Android boot animations can help make the process a little more enjoyable by at least giving you some eye candy while you’re waiting to get to your next round in Super Hexagon. While most custom ROMs and some custom kernels come with their own hallmark boot animation, you may simply want some added variety to spice things up a tad.

Thankfully, XDA Forum Member raishiro has created and shared 81 superb 3D-rendered boot animations. These boot animations come from a collection of 56 .gifs from artist Paolo Čerić, and most of them are “interesting” enough to make you wonder if you have accidentally ingested some unmarked substance or inhaled a few too many fumes. Needless to say, they’re quite fascinating boot animations, and they make the restart process just a tad more bearable.

To give your boot sequence some bling, head over to the original thread. Don’t blame me if you find your device uptime lowered substantially while you try and catch a glimpse of your boot animation a few more times throughout the day.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
