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.

WiMax Notifier for EVO Gets Updated
There was an app sometime last year that came out for the EVO, which allowed you to use WiMax’s LED light to display notifications for SMS messages. The app was left alone for a while until recently. XDA members JGW310 and Noxious Ninja decided to pick up the project where it left off. However, they are doing a whole re-writing of the app to make this great concept do even more than just alerting you of inbound text messages. The new version has been greatly improved in terms of stability, it can also handle MMS and best of all, is compatible with CM7 for those of you who have a thing for AOSP roms. Future updates to this app promise to bring much more notification goodness as it will support e-mail, missed calls, and much more.
If you have tried this app, please leave some feedback for the devs.
Here is WiMax notifier, but updated to work more smoothly on your HTC EVO 4G!!!!
NOXIOUS NINJA AND I ARE GOING TO COMBINE/COLLABORATE TO RE WRITE THE APP, BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE!!!!!! STAY TUNED!!!!!!!
You can find more information in the application thread.

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....
