Dolphin HD 5 Browser Private Beta
The Android Market’s “most popular web browser is being updated to version 5.0″, so says the Dolphin Browser Blog. Thanks to XDA member Androidboy35961, who made us aware of this fact. The new update to the browser will feature at Google’s developer conference. However, if you’re not able to make it to San Francisco for any particular reason, (a big one being that there is a gigantic body of water in the way, at least for me), you can apply to be added to the private beta test list.
I know I’m applying, but the big question is, are you? Want to know what you have to do to apply? Well, it’s simple. First things first, follow Dolphin on Twitter and Facebook. Simple enough so far, right? Next, tell Dolphin “Why would you be a good Dolphin 5.0 tester?”, using the hashtag #dolphinhd5 or the mention @dolphinbrowser.
Dolphin will then wade through all of the applications and let you know today or tomorrow. So act quickly, get your applications in!

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....
