Get A Comfortable Night’s Sleep With Night Clock
I am sure many of you, like myself, have thrown away your ordinary alarm clock and rely solely on your cell phone to kick start your day. This being the case, many times I awake in panic thinking my phone alarm has failed me and I have overslept. Does this situation sound familiar? What do you do when this happens? Most likely, you check your phone for for the time, and then double check the alarm to make sure it’s set correctly. Between rubbing the sleepies out of your eyes and trying to focus on the small blurry numbers, your body may find itself fully awake before even rendering the time on the screen. Then a few minutes later you might find yourself shouting “I just want to go back to sleep, DARN THOSE TINY NUMBERS!”
For this reason, XDA member nathanpc‘s has developed Night Clock. This simple clock makes it easy for you to check the current time and your “wake up” time, without the need to stare blindly at the screen.
Now you can check the current time and the time that you need to wake up comfortably on the middle of the night.
While currently there is no alarm option, this application is still a great alternative to finding yourself wide awake in the middle of the night. For more information visit the original thread.

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....
