Samsung Galaxy S III Launcher Ported to any ICS ROM
Not long ago we brought you news of HTC Sense 4.0 being ported to the Galaxy S II. This is one of the few times that HTC Sense has made its way onto a Samsung device. Porting Samsung’s Touchwiz, however, often takes a little less time and effort. As such, it was only a matter of time before users could enjoy the launcher experience of the Galaxy S III on any device.
XDA Senior Member rani9990 has released a beta port of the popular device’s launcher for use on any device running Ice Cream Sandwich. It is easy to install as well. Users only need to put the apk file onto their devices and manually move it to /system/app using their favorite root explorer. The port has been confirmed working on a number of devices, including:

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....
