Interactive MIUI Mario Lockscreen Can Unlock Your Phone (But Not World 9)

In what is undoubtedly one of the coolest mods I've seen in months, developer picard666 has released an interactive Mario lockscreen for MIUI. So awesome, in fact, that words can't properly describe it. Take a look at the "diagram":

The top cloud shows the current time, and the two clouds below show calls and messages (left and right, respectively). To unlock into calls or messages, you take control of Mario and have to make him hit the corresponding coin box - a coin pops out (optionally with the accompanying sound), then your phone launches the appropriate app.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see What Is Your Ideal Phone Screen Size?

A very simple question this week, and very similar to last week's. Given the trend of larger and larger phone screens (look no further than the ultra-sexy 5.3" Galaxy Note), we already know what your ideal screen size is. But sometimes other aspects of a device may push you to a higher screen size than your ideal.

[New App Review] Screen Cast & Screen Recorder Makes Capturing Smooth, High-FPS Video Of Your Rooted Device's Screen A Breeze

Wouldn't it be sweet if such a thing existed?

[Weekend Poll] What Is Your Ideal Phone Screen Size?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Is Steve Jobs' Resignation The Beginning Of The End For Apple?

Many a discussion has cropped up between AP writers about screen size. David's ideal screen size is about 3.7" - the same as what's on his Nexus One - although he could comfortably go up to 4". Artem, on the other hand, loves his 4.3" EVO and has no qualms with 4.5" screens.

Pixel Qi Announces Two New Sunlight-Readable Screens For Tablets

If there's one thing that annoys us all, it's trying to use a device outside in the sunlight - on some devices it's almost impossible to see the contents of the screen without contorting into all sorts of odd positions to create just the right combination of shade and viewing angle.

However, display maker Pixel Qi is looking to change the game with its newly-announced duo of screens: a 7 inch 1024x600 and 10.1 inch 1280x800, both of which are low power and highly readable in outdoor light.

[Root Tools] Root Call Blocker Makes You Selectively Antisocial

I've had this problem with my cell phone for the past couple of years. Somehow, despite my best efforts, telemarketers have gotten ahold of my cell phone number. In addition to that, I'm STILL getting calls from debt collectors for the person I assume had my phone number before I got it, which was around 4 years ago. This is really annoying. Like, really, really annoying. I've got my own debt collectors calling, I don't need this "Sherry's" collectors calling me as well.
