Time your Mac life according to the Zen masters with Zen Clock [Sponsored post]



This post is brought to you by Alamex Ltd, creator of Zen Clock.

Are you busy on your Mac all the time? Does that little clock in the top right hand corner of your screen govern your life, at least during the week?

Maybe it’s time to switch to Zen Clock.

The Zen Clock turns your desktop to a color that constantly changes through the whole spectrum throughout a 24-hour period.

Take life a little slower and bring some Zen onto your Mac as you learn to tell the time of day in the way nature intended.

Clock App In iOS 7 Now Switches To Digital Clocks With A Single Tap



The Clock app in iOS 7 has been updated so that users can choose whether they want time to be displayed in a traditional clock face or switch to a digital clock.

If you’re not quick on the draw with your clock face reading skills then you’ll love this neat little feature. To switch clocks in the app all you have to do is tap anywhere on the screen.

iOS 7 Reminds Us To Be Careful What We Wish For



It’s our own fault. We all asked Apple to dramatically change the look and feel of the iOS operating system, which, until yesterday, remained largely unchanged since the introduction of the original iPhone back in 2007. And we all complained when it didn’t do that with iOS 6 this time last year.

But I can’t help but feel the Cupertino company is now punishing us for all those requests, and all that complaining we did before about its skeuomorphic designs.

When it comes to design, iOS 7 is vastly different to its predecessors. It still functions in much the same way — though there are some new features you’ll need to get used to — but it looks completely different. As soon as you power it up for the first time the minimalistic feel is staring back at you, but it isn’t until you’ve completed the setup process and arrived at your home screen that you want to vomit in your own lap.

This Gorgeous Theme Gives Your iPhone A Much-Needed Lick Of Paint [Jailbreak]


iOS is a fantastic platform, but as it approaches its sixth birthday, it’s in desperate need of a lick of paint. If you jailbreak your devices, then you don’t need to sit and wait for Apple to administer that, because you can take the design refresh into your own hands by theming.

The only issue with that is finding a theme that’s as beautiful as the hardware it’s running on. There aren’t many out there that fit this description, but iMIUI from Xiaomi is one of them.

If You’ve Ever Wished Your iPhone Had A Massive Snooze Button… [Kickstarter]



A very long three years ago, one of the very first appcessories we ever saw was this crazy-looking hardware clock that mimicked a virtual clock on the face of the iPhone. Whee! Yeah, we weren’t too impressed either. But these guys have the right idea about how to make the iPhone a better clock: add a massive snooze button.
