Magic Mouse blues

OK. Here's the deal: I love my Magic Mouse. No, really… I do. Except as with any relationship, things are not always sunshine and lollies. Setting apart from issues with the lack of out-of-the-box middle click, I'll skip directly to the one issue that stands above all: The battery life.

Custom new icons

Rather than completely changing the style and therefore possibly confusing users, I decided to keep the icons and their form familiar (with a few small exceptions) and only create a somewhat more polished higher-res version of iPhone’s default icons. Once complete, the entire set should also cover over 20 popular apps distributed through Cydia.
