...so it's that time of year again - April Fool's Day 2005. This is our fourth time doing this (holy crap I can't believe it's been that long...) Hope everyone enjoyed the fun. ๐Ÿ˜

So what did you think?

If you're reading this before 7am EST in April 1, 2005, then you may be wondering why the link in the first news bit doesn't work...

All I can say is please check back after 7am EST for the "scoop"... ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bravo Rich!
I spent a good couple of seconds confused before I remembered it was April Fools.

"Samsung Announces 13 New Silver Clamshells" got me to laugh out loud. ๐Ÿ˜
