Windows Phone 7 Swype Skins for Windows Mobile
XDA member lnando84 presents these new skins for your device based on Windows Phone 7 style using Swipe. Skins come in two color backgrounds: Black and White, and both are nicely designed to perfectly fit your Windows Mobile device in portrait and landscape. To make them work, you need to have Swipe installed (of course) and after installation, perform a soft reset for changes to apply.
The developer has tested them on an HTC Rhodium but should work on other WVGA devices as well.
Please leave feed back.

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....
