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

All-In-One Tool for Motorola Xoom Brings Dual Recovery
Tools are useful, that is why we have them. It is in the nature of humanity that our tools evolve with our needs for them, and while some tools deliver everything we want and more, some tools bring features to the table that are just plain cool.
Such is the case with an AIO (All-In-One) tool that users of the Motorola Xoom can now use called Lord AIO Tool. XDA Senior Member XxLordxX has devised a script that offers a plethora of features for Xoom owners, including:
1.Complete Backup Tool
2.Bootloader Unlocker Tool
3.Bootloader Locker Tool
9.Unbrick Xoom Tool
10.Dual Recovery Tool (Testing stage now!)
The newest feature, the Dual Recovery, as you can see is still in beta testing at this time, but promises to be among the cooler features of Motorola Xoom tools. The process for using the tool is pretty easy, but they are .bat files so unless you know how to convert them to .sh files, the only OS this is compatible with right now is Windows. Otherwise, just grab the file, place it in the proper directory and run the .bat file to start using. Of course, it is recommended that everyone make a backup before attempting anything, just in case something goes wrong.

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....
