Library Color Picker for Android (Open Source)
XDA member Devmil, known for the Minimalist text, presents a complete color picker presented as an open source and extracted into an Android library project.

If you like this work or want to contribute please leave a comment in the original thread, your feedback is greatly appreciated.

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.

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....
