iFixit, famous for buying gadgets as soon as they hit the shelves, has a new one-day only gadget on sale. Introducing the New iPad Opening Tool which replaces the need for a heavy-duty 1,500 watt heat gun, plastic spacers, and suction cups, along with "an hour of careful heating and prying". The new iPad has a stuck-down screen making it almost impossible to put together, so this tool will come in great handy.
Instead of the usual interesting facts, Wikipedia replaced many of its front-page elements to include some interesting facts under "Did you know..." and a slightly tweaked "Featured article". For April 1, Americans bombed the Mr. Men-icon "Mr. Grumpy", and one railway station could transport people from England to California in only 15 minutes. Check out yesterday's piece on "pigeon photography"; inconspicuous enough to go unnoticed, but barmy enough not to be taken too seriously.
Flickr brought out its "dither switch" allowing all pages and photos on the image-sharing site to become a melancholy monochrome of black and white. The results were impressive, and were noted on Flickr's blog. Just one button away, and your beautiful, colourful snaps become completely transformed, and can even be downloaded in the hazy, fuzzy black and white contrast Flickr offers.
