Chuggington are downright adorable. As its name implies, Chuggington is a

town and its surrounding countryside. Kids who love the TV show will also love

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.

Keene said he was not surprised, given Biden's past support for new gun

lobbying group for gun owners is a sign that the shooting in Newtown,
Connecticut, has so far failed to change long-held stances on gun politics. In
that tragedy, a young man shot his mother with her own gun before killing 20
children and six adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Biden and up to four Cabinet officers are holding a series of meetings with
outside groups to discuss possible gun legislation. The first was with law
enforcement officials, another with mayors.
