Mariolicious CM7 Theme — Nostalgic Eye-Candy

Do you remember, “back in the day”, when the Nintendo was the equivilent of the Playstation 3? You would control your little eccentric 2D Italian man, collecting coins and performing hundreds of acts of animal cruelty. Being now a relic of a time gone by, whenever faced with something as old as Mario, but as legendary, it makes us all a little nostalgic.

XDA member kgill7 seemingly intends to surface this nostalgia whenever you turn on your phone, presenting to us a CyanogenMod 7 theme which changes the regular status bar icons to that of Mario icons. The theme packs 5 icons for the most used notifications, including Mario’s head for the battery, a flower for signal, a mushroom for WiFi, a Mario body with red arrows for 3G and a Mario body with white arrows for 1X.

Who knows, maybe this might even entice you to buy one of those old consoles and start wasting hundreds of hours saving the princess, again. If you are interested in getting this theme, head on over to the original thread, pick yourself up the theme and leave a message of support!

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people.

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.

Google’s Prank Roundup for April Fools 2015 [Updated]

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....
