    I just want a better speed dial widget, one like htc or the new moto blur style.

    Lol. That's like "if I had one wish, I'd wish for three more wishes."

    The thing is, I wouldn't. 1 wish is enough.

    If I had 1 wish, I would wish that I had the ability to become the greatest in the world an anything I ever set my mind to. Why would you ever need another wish?

    I'm not sure.. how about just wishing that you were incredibly lucky.

    Or wishing that you wouldn't be assassinated by people jealous that you have the ability to become the greatest in the world at anything you set your mind to.

    Or indestructibility. Or that old chestnut, eternal life.

    I'd be the greatest in the world at avoiding assassination and the greatest "eternal life" scientist. If anyone could do it, it would be me.

    Having the ability to be the greatest at anything will feed me for life. But also I wouldnt be bored cause id be doing the things I'm great at. There is still effort involved.

    Plus the every day risks still apply so the things that make life interesting are not Removed.

    I've thought about this at length and truly believe its the greatest compromise

    I know this is not related to the widget topic, but since we are talking about wishes....
    I am thinking my wish will involve.... the Swedish Bikini Team!

    The stuff I used to use power widget for is now covered by the drop down widgets in the notification bar.

    I've never used power widget since I first flashed Cyanogenmod on my Desire and every rom I've ever used since has had toggle widgets in the notification pulldown.
  14. Too lazy to pull-down on the menu. I want the fastest access to the Power Widget when I am on my home screen, as that is the only widget I use mostly.

    As for while I am in my apps, the drop-down menu does help greatly!

    If you long press on the menu button it brings up google search so save your one widget for something else ;)

    Reaching to get to the top of my S3 is not easy (due to the screen size), so I still use the Power Control widgets.

    It would have to be the Volume Widget. I use it to change the sound profile whenever I go outside, go inside and go to bed. To change the sound profile without such a widget would take too long to do.

    I use something similar. Ring Toggle. It looks like a Bell :) I can easily switch between Ring, Ring and Vibrate, Vibrate and Silence with a few touches. I use that widget about a dozen times during the day. Switch it to vibrate when I get to work, switch it to silence when headed into a meeting with the boss, switch it back to Ring or Ring and Vibrate as I leave work. I have an app that can do this for me based off my GPS location but after a few times where it didn't work properly I switched to the Ring Toggle widget. My phone started going off during a company meeting where the owner of the company was talking about the business and the direction were headed and RING, RING...Everyone looks at me :-( Not Good LOL....
