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...
Steel Blue Theme for CM7 – For All ‘Blue’ Lovers
It’s very unlikely, but incase you hadn’t heard that a non-beta stable ROM of Cyanogen Mod 7 was released recently, well… now you know. Now you know that, I’m imagining you running to your nearest computer, downloading the ROM and flashing it as fast as you can. But a stable rom isn’t the only good thing to come from CM7. There are some very good themes for it, too and Steel Blue is certainly one of them.
Not only does the theme itself (for the built-in theme engine) looks fantastic from the large collection of screenshots XDA member edint3000 has included, but it’s also still in Alpha and, from a general concensus, works “almost flawlessly”. It also has a beautiful collection of icons, which are to die for.
Just like every other theme for the CM7 theme engine, it’s available as an apk. Which, as I’m sure you’ll know, is a file you can download and just… run. It’s that simple. (This is why we love the theme engine).
The thread also has links to other themes by Team Carbon, called Poison Green and Blood Red, including some gorgeous boot animations and icons as well.
If you do run CM7 and like the colours Red, Green and/or Blue, I highly recommend that you shoot over to the original thread and go wild.

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. 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....
