I'm not an Android user (yet!), so let me get this straight: those are normally on all the time? :?
No, they can be turned on and off via the setting menu, or a widget that comes built in. He was asking our opinions on third party widgets with extended functionality.
Is it Cyanogen that gives you the power controls in the notifications area or is this a feature of Gingerbread?
That's a CM thing, idea taken from TouchWiz.
Honestly, the best way I've found is something like Quick Settings (free). I don't need to toggle Wifi/GPS/etc. often enough that I need a widget for it, and when I do I just flick open the notification bar, click the Quick Settings button, and toggle it from there.
I've also reduced my homescreens to only 3 (and seriously considering 2), and I personally feel the human brain cannot focus on any more information than that anyways.
I've been reading the User's Guide PDF for the HTC Sensation (just to make myself even more impatient for an Aussie release) and Sense 3.0 will have it too. It will also have a Recent Apps section in the Notification tray.
Sweet, $399 for a Tegra 2 tablet is really a deal thats irresistable
Updates will help it along the way.
