Today is April 1, 2008 and represents April Fools' Day -- so readers should be wary of hoaxes and claims at both news and rumor sites today. Today also represents Apple's 32nd anniversary. Apple was founded on April 1st, 1976 by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.

While we avoid tainting our news stories with April Fools jokes, we've posted hidden April Fools' pages in the past:

2007. MacRumored - MacRumors circa early 1990s
2006. MacRumors Page 3 - Mac News and Rumors You Can't Believe

April Fools around the web:

- Youtube is Rick Rolling their Featured Videos.
- Gmail Custom Time
- gDay with MATE

MacRumors readers should reload their pages if there are design inconsistencies with our page today.

MacRumors does not participate in April Fools news stories. All stories posted today are real.

Heh, April 1st is almost over here.

Typical MacRumours - always late to the party, I've known about the iPhone Dev Team quitting for about a week now. Where were you MacRumours? Where were you?

I actually pulled that custom time stunt to win a contest in my econ class (first to submit answer to brainteaser after specified time).

That was easy with a desktop mail client. Just change the time on my machine before hitting 'send'. Turns out his machine just used the time headers it was given.

Who is the volunteer MacRumors fool for the day?

Personally ... whoever it is deserves to be the fool for the entire month of April.
