April Fools Day is once again upon us and as usual, tech companies everywhere have not failed to keep us entertained.

Add Beats To Any Sense Rom
You have likely been hearing about the new Beats Audio technology that was implemented on the Sensation XE last month. This is essentially a sound enhancer app that makes using headphones a bliss (especially if they are Beats by Dr Dre). A few select roms on various devices have had this ported to them by their respective chefs, like this one. But, what if the particular rom that has it is not exactly your cup of tea? Fear no more because XDA member smokin1337 has just released a flashable version of this, which can be applied to any Sense 3.0 rom. Keep in mind that this has bits and pieces of framework and services.jar, so you can expect some odd behavior of a few things. For instance, the CRT animation seems to stop working after applying this. Not a major downer but something to consider.
The dev also recommends making a NANDROID backup, just in case. Please take this for a spin and make sure that you leave feedback behind if you thought this was useful or if it didn’t work right.
I personally didn’t think beats was all that great but alot of users like it so i made this flashable version for my rom.

Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
