    just curious, besides looking somewhat cool....what is the purpose of these render fx widget colors in cm7?
    are they easier to see the screen in certain lighting?...

    i use red at night when im trying not to wake my gf lol. I would imagine it would be useful to change in bright sunlight also...?

    Doesnt it say certain settings may provide better battery life? I dont really see how but i thought it said that...?

    I think it actually says it may HARM battery life but I can't remember ...

    I think it's neat..I change it to red in the car because it matches all of the dash lights in the car

    I have heard mixed ideas on battery life.
    I suppose it is is a widget which may draw more juice, however it only uses a single color....so maybe the two cancel each other out?! dunno!
