If there was some over-arching, governing body that handed out awards to April Fools’ Day prankers, I should hope that Toshiba would get one. The company today announced the Digit, sloughing off what is usually a pretty boring, business-y style to introduce something truly hilarious to the gadget world. Read More
YOU FOOLS: Large Hadron Collider To Be Testing High Voltage Collisions On The End Of The Mayan Calendar
NOTE: Old article, April Fool’s joke. Actual testing schedule HERE. Boy is my face red (I’m trashed).
Despite all my hoping and praying, the world isn’t going to end on December 21st. Or at least it wasn’t going to until the scientists at CERN decided to test the Large Hadron Collider that day! *breaking out party hats and noise makers* Apocalypse party!
Scientists at CERN have announced test dates for the rest of the year, as well as some curious dates can be found in the upcoming schedule. Starting Monday, December 17, 2012 and going through Friday, December 21, 2012, CERN will be launching and running a series of collisions, which are predicted to break records in high voltage collisions already set by the LHC. With these experiments, the scientists are hoping to create atomic reactions that would provide further information about anti-matter, and the big bang.
Hell yeah, the end of the world! It’s just like that R.E.M. song. “It’s The End of the World?” What? No — Losing My Religion. Get your head in the game, brobro.
Thanks to joe, who — wait, where you going with that gun in your hand? (Jimi Hendrix reference — this post turned into a musical extravaganza!)

Depending on where you are right now, you’re either pretty much done with April Fools’ Day (hence our bloated inbox thanks to all you lovely tipsters!) or it’s just about to start on your side of the world. In fact, some of this year’s submissions already got a head start, including the excellent 8-bit quest mode in Google Maps. Oh, don’t worry, there’s plenty more from Mountain View and the usual participants this year — we’ve rounded up the best of the lot right after the break for your amusement. Keep an eye on this as we will be adding new goodies to the list throughout the day.

Fred goes a tad bit overboard on his April Fool’s Day jokes.

It had to happen. When Google showed off a new and revolutionary Gmail Motion control scheme yesterday, it failed to fool most people, but it didn’t fail to catch the attention of some motion control geeks with Kinect cameras on hand. Yep, the FAAST crew that’s already brought us a Kinect keyboard emulator for World of Warcraft has taken Google to task and actually cooked up the software to make Gmail Motion work. All your favorite gestures are here: opening an email as if it were an envelope, replying by throwing a thumb back and, of course, “licking the stamp” to send your response on its way. Marvelous stuff! Jump past the break to see it working, for real this time.

Inevitably, when PCWorld reports on iPad shortages or iPad sales, someone makes the comment that anyone who bought an iPad is a fool, a lemming, a moron, or a brainwashed Apple cultist.
