April Fools - Not Again!

I read several tech based news pages and aggregator sites, and it seems that every April 1st becomes the day for unfunny people to try to be funny. We see stories that may look real at first, but then seem pretty stupid as we read on. Others just blurt out an impossible announcement that just screams 'FAKE'.

"China buys Google"

I find these faux stories pretty annoying, both because they aren't funny and because they seem to replace the actual news stories.

Also, I would think that these sites wouldn't want to risk their credibility. We don't see CNN posting fake stories.

C'mon guys (and you know they are all guys) Give it up and stick to the real news.

Hear hear!!
