Auxo Shows Off a Redesigned iOS App Switcher (Macrumors)
Apple has spent little focus updating its iOS app switcher since it was
introduced with iOS 4, so designer @Sentry_NC decided to try his hand at a new
concept for app switching.
In October, he created a mockup on The Verge forums of an iOS app switcher
that takes advantage of the iPhone 5's elongated screen, providing easy access
to settings and additional app management tools.
Though it was originally designed as just a concept, the Auxo iOS app switcher
has now become a reality as a jailbreak tweak after Sentry teamed up with two
Auxo's design allows users to control apps with intuitive touch gestures. For
example, sliding down on an app closes it, while swiping left reveals both
music controls and toggle controls for adjusting brightness and turning Wi-Fi
on and off. The video below, from _iDownloadBlog_, demonstrates how Auxo
The Auxo tweak may be limited to jailbroken devices, but it serves as an
impressive example of the improvements that could be made to future versions
of iOS if Apple takes notice. Auxo is not currently available, but it is
coming soon to Cydia for jailbroken iOS 6 devices.

Payroll Tax Cut: Some Republicans Willing To Back Obama's Proposal (Huffington post)
* These include some who opposed extension last year
* This year's fiscal cliff forces a second look
By Rachelle Younglai and Kim Dixon
WASHINGTON, Dec 12 (Reuters) - In a turnabout from a year ago, some Republican
lawmakers say they are open to backing President Barack Obama's proposal to
extend the payroll tax cut for a third year, possibly bringing the sides
closer to a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff.
Last year Speaker John Boehner, the leading Republican in the House of
Representatives, suffered through a revolt by ultra-conservative Republicans
opposing the cut. They argued cutting the payroll tax would add to the deficit
and hurt the retirement program it helps finance.
That was last year. This is this year.
"It depends on how it is put out, said New York Representative Tom Reed, one
of the Republicans who opposed a Boehner-brokered deal to extend the cut last
year. "I think lower taxes is always better policy, so we are interested in
looking at lessening the tax burden on all Americans."
Introduced by Obama two years ago as an economic stimulus, the tax holiday
reduced an employee's share of the payroll tax from 6.2 percent ...
Posh boats ride a rising tide (St. Petersburg Times)
**By Terry Tomalin, Times Outdoor/Fitness Editor**

ST. PETERSBURG -- You know marine manufacturers must be feeling good about the
economy when the hottest thing at a local boat show is a 27-foot yacht tender
that costs more than most people's home.
"We are definitely going after that upscale market," said Ken Rawley,
spokesman for the Hacker Boat Company, manufacturer of high-end, mahogany
speedboats in Silver Bay, N.Y. "We are targeting people who have an
appreciation for classic or retro styling."
The Hacker-Craft, a longtime favorite of European princes and movie stars,
looks like it would be more at home on a northern lake than the fickle waters
of the Gulf of Mexico. But Rawley said the special Tommy Bahama edition
Hacker-Craft, with a price tag of $329,000, could be a big seller in a market
such as St. Petersburg, which is hosting its annual power and sailboat show
"This is a beautiful city with a great waterfront," he said. "We think it
holds great promise for us and that is why we are here."
Rawley isn't the only one optimistic about Florida's marine industry. Danny
Grant, spokesman for Show Management, which produces ...
