The worst Apple April Fool’s jokes of 2009

There’s a great pressure in the Mac blog-o-sphere to attempt to be funny on April First, and many blogs just aren’t up to the challenge. Obviously our site is hysterical EVERY day, so we do not feel the need to make up some BS story in an attempt to get a cheap LOL, and neither should these sites:

Steve Jobs is dead – Tasteless
MacBook Tablet released ! – just kinda weak
Steve Jobs Reportedly Gained Weight in March – Decent headline, but that’s all. AND they seem to have taken my Mandy Amano Mac Chick of the month pics
Apple To Release iPhone For Kids – lame, and has a press release quoting Steve Jobs, so not all that well researched
BREAKING: Rogers Announces iPhone 4G with Lifetime Contracts – WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too long for ANY press release
Apple goes completely nuts, switches Macs to Windows – They didn’t even try

Let me know if I missed any.

    Did you hear about Apple’s cold fusion laptop battery? You will never have to recharge your MacBook again. Really! It’s the truth! Why don’t you believe me?

    I read the headline links and feel like I’m caught up now without having to suffer (read) through those…thanks for taking one for the team Dr. Macenstein.

    I know I’m a party pooper or whatever you want to call it, but I really don’t like April 1st, I would rather it be April 15th every day of April than April 1st once.

    This one is actually really good, iPhone2Mac:

    The video is available in German in French only, but I think you get the joke anyway.
