Theme Transparent Widget Skins for Android
XDA member ilangoadigal has just skinned several widgets for your Android device such as Pandora, Weather Channel, and GTasks now giving a transparent fresh look. The developer is open to requests for more applications to be skinned, so all you have to do is step in and ask (no system widgets).

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.
