Solar Powered Charger Screen Protector
New clean technologies are just around the corner and soon we won´t need to use wall chargers anymore.

But even more exciting is the fact that the covering would constantly top-up your phone’s battery, meaning that you have to charge via a wall plug much less often. And because phone batteries can use this constantly-available power to stay charged, phone manufacturers can stop making them so huge. Smaller batteries can lead to even smaller, thinner phones!.

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....
