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.

Manila Slider 3D for WM
What about having some sliders in 3D for your Windows Mobile device? XDA member tantin75 has made it possible. The original Manila icons have been re worked to give the simulation of a multidimensional look, working on patched Manila 2.5 and should also work on 2.1.
When you select the tab you want to use, the rest of the icons will remain lay down like giving the selected tab a nice effect. Working on WM6.5 and up.

– you must have manila 2.5 (but may work also on 2.1: test at your own risk ),
– your manila must be patched to accept compressed files.
The cab includes only the original icons reworked presented below (no programs and no ereader for now), the slide bar and the slide tab.
You can find more information in the application thread.
