April Fools Day is once again upon us and as usual, tech companies everywhere have not failed to keep us entertained. With a trove of fantastic faux product launches and even some real product launches that were taken as April Fools jokes, people have been busy releasing their hilarious ideas. With many of these jokes being nostalgic and some even being functional it's easy to appreciate the spirit behind them. Samsung Galaxy Blade Edge In a reference to the Galaxy...
Battery Saving Mega Guide Celebrating User’s 2000th Post
Imagine for a second that you’re coming up fast on an XDA forum milestone. Be it your 50th, 100th, or 1000th post—you really want to make it count. So or how do you best make use of these milestones? Looking back at my own post history, I always had big ideas for every major milestone with a planned celebratory post. Unfortunately, distraction and obligations would always kick in, and I would never quite remember in time for these big moments.
Well luckily, not everyone is quite as easily distractible as your favorite Editor-in-Chief. Proof of this can be seen in XDA Recognized Contributor Riro Zizo‘s 2000th post made just a few days ago. Rather than simply posting random lolcats and troll images in an area I am far too scared to ever venture, Riro Zizo decided to create a battery-saving mega guide, based on previous work he released on his own website.
The guide is split into three posts, based on difficulty level. Easy tweaks that everyone can do are in the OP, while medium difficulty tweaks are in the second post, and advanced tweaks are in the third. Every tweak is explained in great detail to help you make sense of it all, regardless of your skill level. Because of this, the guide serves as a great resource you can send to all your friends complaining about “worse battery life on Android” than what they saw on their iPh*ne.
Make your way over to the battery saving mega guide to get started. And once you’ve given a few of the methods a shot, don’t be shy, and share your results in the comments below!

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. 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....
