    This thread was started on April first, at the same time that a new MacRumors Page 3 was added to the site. Page 3 was first noticed by idea_hamster (see post below).

    All links on Page 3 are to this thread.​

    Brilliant! The entire page is a hoot! Bravo, MR, Bravo!

    That page must have taken weeks to think up -- but an app called "TuneAbout" would be cool....:)

    EDIT: "My virus won't compile (315)" -- LOL

    TextEdit feels faster after Mac OS X Update (75)

    Does Bluetooth come in other colors? (86)

    Totally genius. Doctor Q did a great job on that page, although I'm still convinced some of those things are actually real.

    Am I just an idiot? I'm not seeing any of the shenanigans you guys are talking about. :confused:

    Edit: Nevermind...I didn't flip all the way to Page 3. ;) I'm sending in my iPod right now...looking forward to receiving my pyramid.

    Yeah, where's the G5 PowerBook's next Tuesday thread?

    And where's the "Enough of the Effing ™ Threads" thread? Oh wait, that's a real one.

    Garageband needs more cowbell...my side hurts.

    Happy April fools!!!! :) And happy April, Team MR! :)

    How come my iPod doesn't have a slot on the side???? I've heard other people are putting CDs into their iPods.... I tried to "rip" one of mine apart, but this technology is too complicated. :mad:

    Thanks mods/membership. For the laughs, for the information, for the drama and for being such a damn fine community.

    I appreciate the efforts. On April Fools and on all the other days over the years.

    Cheers.

    So subtle I almost missed it, which would have been a shame given how much work has been put in. Talk about attention to detail.

    Excellent stuff and highly amusing, especially when you've been around here for a wee while... kudos to all involved.

    This was probably my favorite... so subtle :D

    And this one is great too... sometimes it really does seem like this is how "true rumors" come about.
