Its the 1st of April, point us to any funny ads, or other seasonally appropriate spots on the interwebs.

Your starter for 10: maps.google.com, search for an address, and play Pacman!

Radio station I listen to seemed to be seriously reporting that Bathurst fans would be able to speed up their favourite drivers by affecting their engine through a smartphone app in a drive to increase social interaction.

Strangely enough, I seem to recall this is actually available in Formula E. (So, like all good AFs, there is a grain of truth buried somewhere)

Apparently The Edge radio station ran all their programming 10 minutes early - so the 8am news came on at 7:50 - to freak out people listening on the car radios on the way to work.

Email to all staff saying that on average we spend too long travelling between our offices and that they're launching a shuttle service with a spare helicopter.

Master filters are actually GCSB listening devices.





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

All it did was make them seem like idiots they couldn't tell the time between them.
