why you think it was bad? All news dedicated to 1st of April sounds fishy ;]

I thought it was pretty clever actually -- before I posted it I did a search and couldn't find anyone else who had come up with anything similar. I still remember the days of the classic "Write-Only Memory (WOM)" and the "Black Noise Generator"

I read an article in Discover Magazine years and years ago about small rodents that lived in the antarctic and burrowed through the ice and snow using a hotspot on their heads to melt it away. They were supposed to be small but incredibly vicious. The article suggested that large numbers of these creatures may have been responsible for the disappearance of some explorers. They showed pictures and everything It was only last year that I discovered that it was an April's Fool Day spoof... Now my mind is churning for something I can come up with myself for next year ... I have a cunning plan ...

I was also excited with this but then I came to the conclusion that it was nothing more than... ???tap?????! ("April's First Day" in Greek) Nice spoof by the way. Cheers, Nikos Kavvadias

99.13% of the speed of light. Switching at relativistic speeds. Too bad they did not unveil the revolutionary networking technology they are working on for the military. Based on wormhole tunelling neutrinos, this can achieve petabytes per second, with virtually zero delay. - Jonny

Graphene is a wonderfull material, it has a great use for medicine for measuring impedance changes in liquids (ie. finding out if someone is a diabethic). It is a true material of the future.
