The internet was rife with delightfully whimsical misinformation yesterday as April Fool's Day unfolded upon us all. First off, Google announced the creation of Google Romance, a tool using the search-engine giant's vast data-sorting capabilities to find the one person who's right for you. Blizzard announced that the new Alliance race for WoW would be wisps. Wizards of the Coast announced their D20 modern-based My Little Ponies RPG (check out the pink beholder at the bottom of the release). ThinkGeek announced several amazing new products. Among them were wireless power cables, the grow your own 1UP mushroom kit, and the iZilla everything media player. ThinkGeek also had sidebar ads for "Playstation 3: Now Shipping!" Slashdot changed to a more "young female oriented" all-pink design which included the new slogan "OMG!!! PONIES!!!!" Nerds really took the pink theme and ran with it, and soon we were informed of the new BarbieOS: a Linux distribution released by Mattel.
You ARE the pony.

YAY!! Immortal life!!!! I wonder if jumping on a turtle shell against some stairs would work too? And wouldn't it be awesome if I found a block of brick hovering in the air that I could jump up and punch repeatedly for endless money!! Or better yet, if I found a fairy fountain and bottle a whole bunch for revival and energy replenishment! YAY Nintendo!Posted on April 2, 2006 01:36 PM
For the wireless power cables (which would work in theory btw), the availability is listed as "Don't Sue". Ha.Posted on April 2, 2006 01:45 PM
Bryn: As much as I'd like to have my spleen boiled when I accidentally walk between my two "base stations", I think I'll stick with the much more affordable and feasible wired power for now.
Denai: My car was totaled when a giant, spiny, twirling shell careened into it yesterday. I blame Bowser. I'm going to eat a colorful flower and fry his ass with fireballs.Posted on April 2, 2006 02:09 PM
