I like it.

Perhaps there is also room for showing time since last used, or maybe
replace time since activity was installed.  That would fix the annoying
"six year old activities" problem.

Don't forget a cascaded change of the icon at the top right corner;
it should be a series of rectangles rather than a series of lines.
