CyanogenMod Power Widgets to be replaced by a “Quick Access Ribbon”

The folks at CyanogenMod are prepping for some upcoming changes to the power widgets. These have been used for quite some time now and were originally introduced back on the CM7 days.

That aside, the power widgets will be going away in favor of something called the Quick Access Ribbon.

CyanogenMod Chromecast streaming support teased

Koush has returned with another Chromecast demo and this latest is one that CyanogenMod users will likely be happy to see come available.
