THE REAL NEWS – Happy Birthday Apple, Apple Inc. turns 32 today! Apple was founded on April 1, 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne to sell the Apple I personal computer kit. They were hand-built by Steve Wozniak in the living room of Jobs' parents' home, and the Apple I was first shown to the public at the Homebrew Computer Club.
Since it is April Fools Day, here are The Top 10 Harmless Geek Pranks.
More fun for you pranksters running Tiger or windows, here is a fun screen saver that makes it look like your computer just crashed…hee hee hee…Thank goodness April Fools is only ONE day a year!
RUMORS – You can't get on-line for more than 5 minutes before you see something about the NEW 3G iPhone coming out this summer.
"Analysts have speculated that Apple would bring the faster iPhone to market around the time of its World Wide Developer Conference, scheduled for June 9-13, in San Francisco." For you NON-geeks out there: 3G networks are wide area cellular telephone networks which evolved to incorporate high-speed internet access and video telephony.
GADGET – Don't you just love all the cool gadgets 007 has?
Well I do and here is the latest, a camera-watch or watch-camera. It comes with a wireless LCD receiver to monitor all your secret spy meetings! You will need 007's bankroll as well, this "secret agent" must have will run you almost 4 bills, that's around $400! It might be cheaper to be 006.
We’ve all known Jobs has been slipping lately and the time has finally come. Steve Jobs was fired from Apple after being quite abusive to the Lisa team and his own team after focussing his energy towards the Macintosh. Jobs was let go and has no plans to move anywhere else and is currently taking time to evaluate his life.
Jobs is a very public failure. I mean, who wouldn’t be after being fired from a company you started. But in the end, we think it is all for the greater good, even though Jobs was best known for his design elements which may be lacking in the next Apple Computer product release. We’ll have to see how things turn out for Steve, but it is fairly obvious that he won’t be working in the computer industry again, and definitely not for Apple.
BREAKING NEWS – No one saw it coming but after the most dismal release of an Operating system, Windows Vista, Bill Gates decided to close the doors and sell his once treasured company Microsoft to long time rival Apple Inc. The Tech industry was stunned to hear it only sold for one Billion Dollars! Steve Jobs was quoted as saying “It was just a matter of time, we have the iPod, iPhone and the iMac, now we have iMicrosoft.” After hours of “behind doors” negotiation, Bill Gates emerged with the details of the sale and reveled to the press, he was sad to see Microsoft go but was thrilled that he could finally get an iPhone, he’s wanted one for almost a year now!
oh yea….April Fools! Come on, iMicrosoft…..really!?! Couldn’t I come up with something wittier than that?

Betamax and HD-DVD are like a match literally made in heaven (you know, that place you go when you die?), and now you can get a slice for yourself. Featuring simple one-touch record between either format, your media has never felt less obsolete.
I am sure this is just the beginning of the 4-1 high-jinks that we will see today.
I really like this one, I wonder if it converts 8-track tapes as well!

Happy 32nd birthday, Apple Computer!
Apple was founded on April 1, 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne to sell the Apple I personal computer kit. They were hand-built by Steve Wozniak in the living room of Jobs’ parents’ home, and the Apple I was first shown to the public at the Homebrew Computer Club. Eventually 200 computers were built. The Apple I was sold as a motherboard (with CPU, RAM, and basic textual-video chips) — not what is today considered a complete personal computer. The user was required to provide two different AC input voltages (the manual recommended specific transformers), wire an ASCII keyboard (not provided with the computer) to a DIP connector (providing logic inverter and alpha lock chips in some cases), and to wire the video output pins to a monitor or to an RF modulator if a TV set was used. The Apple I went on sale in July 1976 and was market-priced at $666.66.Wozniak came up with the $666.66 price because he liked repeating digits.”
Presents, Cake and ice cream – soon to follow….
This analog watch looks normal, but features a small built-in spy camera.
Smart mounting of the camera results in the image being correctly orientated when the watch is upside down, for example when naturally resting your arm on a table. With stylish brushed aluminum and black a face no one will ever suspect they’re being watch by such a well dressed person.
The receiver unit comes with a 2.5 inch LCD and the capability of monitoring 4 wireless cameras at a time, playing music and even MPEG 4 movies if the mood takes you.
Get ready to shell out $378.75 but hey, 007 needs some cool gadgets!
