Switch your Pocket PC over to the Dark Side

I don't know about you, but Darth Vader is one of my all-time favorite film baddies. In fact, the actor who played him once signed a Get Well Soon card for me at my local supermarket. Actually, I still have it in my attic and I'm welcome to offers over and above 100 bucks. View full description

PROS

I don't know about you, but Darth Vader is one of my all-time favorite film baddies. In fact, the actor who played him once signed a Get Well Soon card for me at my local supermarket. Actually, I still have it in my attic and I'm welcome to offers over and above 100 bucks.

Sorry, I digress, this isn't an eBay posting, it's a review about a Darth Vader theme for Pocket PC. It's quite a nice one too. Designed by Alan's Pocket Portal, the theme features a close-up background image of Vader's head with the Star Wars logo next to it. It's a hand-drawn picture rather than a photograph, but it's quite realistic even though you only see one side of his face.

The theme also tweaks some of the menu, navigation bar and text colors of the Windows Mobile OS. For instance, the Today screen text is changed to a highly readable bright green, and the Start menu background colour goes to a dark gray. Generally, the colors compliment each other well and there are no horrid clashes.

If you're a fan of Star Wars then this is a pretty cool way of showing your passion for the movie series.

This theme for Pocket PC is based around Darth Vader, a fictional character from the Star Wars universe. He was portrayed by bodybuilder David Prowse and a series of stunt doubles, most notably Bob Anderson, while he was voiced by actor James Earl Jones. The character is one of the most iconic villains in film history and was ranked third on American Film Institute's 100 Heroes and Villains list.

In the original trilogy, Vader is depicted as the brutal head enforcer of the Galactic Empire's rule across the galaxy. Vader serves as the apprentice of Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid), using the dark side of the Force to mercilessly pursue the Jedi and the Rebel Alliance to the ends of the galaxy. The prequel trilogy recounts the heroic rise and tragic fall of Vader's former self, Anakin Skywalker. Anakin was portrayed by Jake Lloyd and Hayden Christensen in the prequel trilogy, while Sebastian Shaw played the role in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
