Cross Referencing Tool for Manila Editing Folks
If you are interested in customising the Manila files on your Windows Mobile device, you might be a little fazed by the naming conventions of the many files making it difficult to match up the files to what you see on screen.
XDA forum member m0bmentality has helpfully created a map of sorts – the XDA member has referenced the grey manila files in a cab file so that you can install and then look through your phone and find out the number of the manila file that you want to change. You can then cross reference that file number on the grey file to the numbered file in the zip file (available to download in the thread).
The idea is that you copy the number file from the zip into your photoeditor and then reinsert the edited version using a manila editor. Uninstalling the cab file, returns your manila files back to originals except for the one that you deliberately edited.
To try out the tool, head on over to the application thread.

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....
