No Foolin'

Well, I had thought of a few clever little April Fool ideas today, but never had the time or gumption to actually write one up and make it feel real. Oh well, that's alright, because it seems everyone else on the web is hard at work, creating spoofs today, which is cool.

My idea, which never came to fruition, was to maybe suggest that San Disk had come up with a second generation Palm OS SD WiFi card with incredible 1000 foot range. I'd have a really nicely built, low profile SD card shown, with a little gleam on it. You know, selling it big time and all that.

Then, in the copy, detail how there was this special, hair-thin 1000 foot long fiber optic cable that needed to be wrapped around your head and then connected between the SD card and your access point. Seemed about right, considering the delay after delay we've seen from San Disk WiFi card drivers for the Palm OS.

Anyway, I've got nothing to trick you all with this year. Sorry. Maybe next year.

Happy April 1st!
