Stop Making Unwanted Phone Calls With Call Confirm for Android
If you have shortcuts in your Android home screen (whichever launcher you may be using), it is rather likely that you have initiated a call by accidentally tapping on one of the shortcuts. Well, thanks to a little app called Called Confirm, this is a thing of the past. The app will pop up with a confirmation dialog box, which will ask you whether you are truly trying to make a phone call or not.

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.

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....
