HTC Sense 3.0 Details and “fuckinperfekt” is its Friend

Looks like i will be getting at least one of the two improvements i asked for.

Eventually, matter has to repeat itself and arrange itself in similar ways. So if the universe is infinitely large, it is also home to infinite parallel universes.

Does that sound confusing? Try this: Continue reading
