April Fools Day is once again upon us and as usual, tech companies everywhere have not failed to keep us entertained. With a trove of fantastic faux product launches and even some real product launches that were taken as April Fools jokes, people have been busy releasing their hilarious ideas. With many of these jokes being nostalgic and some even being functional it's easy to appreciate the spirit behind them. Samsung Galaxy Blade Edge In a reference to the Galaxy...
Sports Rules & News Brings Global Sports Coverage… and Rules
Two things many mobile users are always in search of are a good sports app and a rule book for their sport of choice. While there are many sports applications for users to select from, most cover only the American “big four”—hockey, (American) football, basketball and baseball. Some people perhaps want to know more about the international ping pong scene, and let’s not forget about the awesomeness to be found in both rugby and soccer. And we swear, some ping pong aficionados can be quite passionate about their sport.
To paraphrase our unnamed arch nemesis, there’s an app for that. XDA Forum Member appzinventors has released an application called Sports Rules & News. The point? To cover the 12 most popular globally recognized sports, and provide users with all their associated rules. The supported sports are: football (soccer), cricket, tennis, Formula 1, golf, rugby, basketball, baseball, badminton, volleyball, table tennis, and hockey.
The news section includes useful information such as scores from various matches, but the meat and potatoes of the application is its built-in rule book. No more Google searching looking for random rules from random sports—simply open the app, and go find it. It’s a dream come true for hardcore fans of any of these sports, especially those who like shouting at referees through televisions because that hockey hit clearly violated Rule 48 and was, in fact, a check to the head.

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. You can find guides on how to revert...
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....
