Forum Rant- My General Thoughts on Sprint's Unlimited/Unsatisfactory Data Speeds

The following forum post excerpt was in response to a thread that had been started on XDA in regards to Sprint's data speeds being extremely slow.  The argument had been made that perhaps it was slow due to the abuse of their unlimited data plan by way of a few of those with rooted devices using wireless tether indiscriminately.  It was also stated that this may also lead to Sprint getting rid of their unlimited data plans altogether.  With that said, I wholeheartedly disagreed  with that notion and went on to explain my view accordingly...

Ropehead Review: Transparent Google+ 2.1.1

If there's one thing a an avid fan of, it's themed apps.  Just another way to separate your device from the rest.  From inverted apps to transparent widgets... the list goes on and on.

Now with that said, when an app is updated to a new version, I'll actually keep the older version on my phone for a bit in the hopes that a modified version of the app will surface on the forum.  In regards to the Google+ most recent update (v2.2.1) that day had arrived.  Android Themer, B-boy, has taken the Google+ updated app and made 4 versions of the app which are Inverted, Transparent, Stock Icons Inverted, Stock Icons Transparent.  ((con't)

Rom Overview: dReWs-Ginger_FauxICS v.Beta2 (HTC Hero CDMA) **Updated 11/06/2011**

Ever since my laptop crashed with Vista, which also happened to bork my recovery, I've been running Linux (Ubuntu 10.10) on it.  Since I was now running Linux natively on my laptop, I decided to try to cook a ROM just to do it.  With that said, I'd like to introduce to you my very first attempt at cooking with Android... Ginger_FauxICS (v.Alpha3.1).
