Guide: Perfect Screen Protector Installation Technique

Ok, you may think we all know how to properly install a screen protector on a device´s screen but I bet more than one of us has left some bubbles or dust on it when applying. XDA member BillTheCat wrote a complete guide on the technique he used to successfully apply that plastic protector without any pain.
The member mentions that the guide is intended for self-adhesive (non-water based) films, but should work for other types as well.
Please let us know if this method has worked for you and on which device.

Guide: Perfect Screen Protector Installation Technique

After reading about the frustrations of those of you who have had trouble installing screen protectors, and your disappointment with the results, I’ve written this guide to help those of you who suffer from bubbles and dust after installation or who just generally struggle with getting the screen protector applied.

This guide illustrates techniques I’ve used successfully over many PDAs and phones, and each time I get a PERFECT install, no dust or bubbles and almost always perfectly even edge-to-edge positioning. Yes, you’ll need a steady hand and a bit of practice, but it’s not as bad as you think, and this technique has worked for me every time.

I can STRONGLY recommend the WriteShield Crystal from Pocket PC Techs, or the Vikuiti films which are made by 3M. Don’t let the cheesy packaging of the 3M protectors fool you if you see them in the store – they’re quality stuff. What I find different about these two brands is that they seem to have a harder more scuff/scratch resistant surface. I had a WriteShield on my HD2 for over a year without ever noticing any damage to it.

Now, on to the procedure.

Continue to the original thread.

Google’s Prank Roundup for April Fools 2015

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 following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far.
