Oh dear... I have been considering abandoning AI forums because it appears that they are turning into a DED blog.I followed him for years on his roughly drafted blog...But I eventually left the site because of his biased reporting and demeaning anyone who disagreed with him.DED is pro-Apple to an unsupportable degree... and anti everything MS, Google, Sammy, et al.When DED sticks to the facts he often creates a reasoned, well-presented article (even if it tends to be...
Settings--->General--->Accessibility Shortcut--->Invert colorsWorks rather nicely!On iOS6 you could do white on black through a similar setup.

People bitch and moan about the new and less comfortable -- but most will spend a few moments, assess the advantages vs disadvantages -- then move on to iOS 7.2 out of 3 grandkids are testing (for me) iOS 7 on their iP4 and iP5 (the 17-year-old granddaughter is just to busy to sacrifice her iP4 for the install). And, 3 out of 3 have iOS 7 on their iPads. They like it -- asked for it, actually.I suspect that Apple will" make you a [functional] offer you can't...
