The site's live: LiveTile.me
I'm excited to announce a new place to get modern UI icons.
I'll be posting new Microsoft and non-Microsoft related icons that will be flat.
3 versions: "colored," black, and white.
I NEED YOU!
Since it's hosted on Tumblr, I thought it would be fun to get some additional authors and/or contributors to the site. If you're interested in adding modern UI icons of your own, fill out this form.
It's time for a new era
Windows 10 is Microsoft's vision for an OS fully realized. It's a fully desktop-oriented OS, with the ability to ebb and flex for a variety of other form factors, like tablets and extremely large displays.
As of today at 12:10am, Windows 10 has been installed on my Surface Pro 3 and working smashingly. I'm still waiting on the prompt to upgrade my desktop machine, however. The rollout begins today, and depending on your region, your PC, whether or not you're part of the Windows Insider program, and your internet connection, your upgrade could start soon.
This is an exciting time for Microsoft fans, technology fans, and even consumers in general. People are going to love Windows 10!
Also, did I mention it's a free upgrade for those consumers? Yeah, people like free stuff.
App + Service Icons
The OneDrive link contains four folders, two called "black" and two called "white" each with its respective color of the icons. Each color has .png and .ico versions. Each icon is 256 x 256 and supports transparency. I found most of these icons by hunting in the Windows 10 system files.

I've been very busy this past month. First there's the traveling, work, and life stuff, then there's the extra stuff I've been tacking on lately.
I was inspired to write a book about Twitter, so I did.
As I was writing, I was inspired to create a podcast. So I did!
