CyanogenMod 7 (CM7) is based on Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) from Google. It not only brings Gingerbread, but includes additional great features like sending canned SMS responses with a gesture, incognito browsing, a new simple theme engine and smaller tweaks like being able to play and pause music with the camera button. Other cool new features include built-in CPU clocking, a “phone goggles” feature, which, like Gmail’s Mail Goggles feature, prevents you from sending unwanted SMS messages by making you do simple math problems.
CM is currently providing support for 30 devices. There are a few CM6 features that aren’t part of CM7 yet, but they are in the queue for 7.1 already. Check out the full changelog for detailed information about what’s included in this release.
Microsoft has come up with some really cool themes for Windows 7 users, and the latest one is really awesome. The theme is a collection of nature photographs taken by Microsoft blogger Mike Swanson.
Unlike the other Windows 7 themes which are a collection of nature photographs that I’ve downloaded before, this one is really of very high quality! The images are all 1920×1200 in resolution and if you have a LCD panel that can produce such resolution, this theme looks stunningly fantastic in it. The collection consists of 16 most gorgeous nature photographs taken by Mike Swanson.
