Given that April 1st is Apple's anniversary, it wouldn't be unreasonable for them to release something...no one would believe them, though.

I clicked on the link thinking "stupid n00b reading between the lines again dammit...I'm gonna kill this bastard, but I'll check apple.com just in case".

Oh well. Still an hour to go though.

Wow, thanks, I needed that! This is the funniest post I've seen in years, possibly ever. How did you ever come up with this? I mean, Christ, that's just so funny! Saying that the G5 is announced on April 1st, aka, April Fools day!

Can't wait to see what you come up with next, you funny guy!

I knew it was April Fools, but I can't wait for Apple to pull it too. Actually, I think I'd put a reference to a "G5" in the source of the Apple.com mainpage, and then put "April Fools" under it somewhere, and see how many people didn't catch it.

Now it'd be really great to see how many people simply clicked through. A great number are posting, but it'd be fun to see just how many people fell for it (like me)

Maybe someone should tell Leonis, that EVERY DAY is April Fools here at AI!

Post fake stuff on April 1 as a joke is actually quite funny in and of itself, since fake stuff is posted at AI twenty-for-seven. It's like, the joker isn't in on the joke, he's PART of the joke!

Well, Apple did release something today, namely the Bluetooth technology preview 1. Not a G5, but still....
