Editor’s Note 4/49/08 12:36 PM: OK, I’ll admit it. I got HAD by this article. It was based on an April’s Fools joke and made it’s way to PCMech well after April Fools. I’ll leave it up here since people have already commented on it. I’m not sure if Nathan (the author) knew it was a farce, but one thing is for sure: I need to pay much better attention when I’m publishing guest posts for PCMech. Sheesh…
