How True Blood should have ended..

Standard

True Blood has been a show with its fair share of ups and downs  but I was expecting a better finale.. and the finale wraps up the story nicely too except when it comes to Sookie, the person around whom the story revolves.

true-blood - 8

Instead of driving a stake through Bill’s heart, here is how it should have gone down..

Bill was becoming more like human because of the disease and Sookie could hear his thoughts.

Sookie can only use her light one last time, after that she will lose the power and become completely human.

At Bill’s request she uses her light on Bill but instead of killing him, it kills the disease within him and he ends up in a very weak human state.

Sookie, now a human, nurses Bill back to health and they live happily every after.

Well, until they die of old age.

Moviebox for iOS updated to 3.0

Standard

[UPDATE] Jailbreak for iOS 7.1 and above is now available!

Moviebox is without doubt one of my favourite and heavily used app in my iPad. Just an hour ago the app was updated to version 3.0 from 2.7, and this is a major update.

Even though there is no official change-log, here is what’s new –

1. A brand new icon.

2. A brand new interface – Moviebox 3.0 is designed to look great on iOS 7. The interface is simpler and with lots of nice animations.

3. It’s faster, smoother and more stable – the app no longer restart if you move to some other app and come back to it. This is a very nice update because sometimes while watching a show or a movie, I usually go to imdb app to look up info about what I’m watching or to twitter to tweet about it.

4. Background download support – another awesome update. In the previous version if you wanted to download a movie or show, you have to keep the app open till the download completes. In the current version you can navigate to any other app the downloads will still be going on in the background.
