How widgets could work on iOS 8
The concept is an approach that attempts to mix the best of Android’s widgets system with the design and functionality of Windows Phone’s Live Tiles. “iOS Block” is the result, a method to turn a simple app icon into a larger block that’s animated and interactive. “You can interact with a Block and actually do stuff with it,” explains Machalani. “But, you can also access the application directly from the Block since it is the app itself, not a separate entity.”

I SAID TOMORROW (May 31) IS NATIONAL SAVE YOUR HEARING DAY!

If you’re anything like me, every day is a tiny struggle not to wish you saw a different person in the mirror.  Before making any drastic changes, it’s important to learn to love what you see before you begin to make improvements

All I want is to eat Mac n Cheese all night.  Too bad my stomach has the same capacity of a five-year-old child’s.  I think this is what they call a first world problem.

No sin evades his gaze

Everything is more complicated than you think. You only see a tenth of what is true. There are a million little strings attached to every choice you make; you can destroy your life every time you choose. But maybe you won’t know for twenty years. And you’ll never ever trace it to its source. And you only get one chance to play it out. Just try and figure out your own divorce. And they say there is no fate, but there is: it’s what you create. Even though the world goes on for eons and eons, you are here for a fraction of a fraction of a second. Most of your time is spent being dead or not yet born. But while alive, you wait in vain, wasting years, for a phone call or a letter or a look from someone or something to make it all right. And it never comes or it seems to but doesn’t really. And so you spend your time in vague regret or vaguer hope for something good to come along. Something to make you feel connected, to make you feel whole, to make you feel loved.
