BREAKING NEWS

The Next Nexus device from Google will be a phone or a tablet, or another kind of internet enabled device of some kind. It will be made by an OEM that Google either has, or has not worked with before. 

Regardless of whomever makes it the device itself will set be used as the then benchmark device.

It will divide a lot of people.

Many of you will not be happy with it.
Many of you will have expected more. 
Many of you will sit behind your screen and complain about it.
Many of you will vow to never buy it.

All of this will happen before Google officially announces anything. Before you see what the device looks like. You will be basing your views on fake renders and wishlists of what those who do not know anything make up. 

Please note this model can be applied to other phones and tablets, it is not not exclusive to the Nexus brand.

This PSA was brought to you by me since so many of you need to be reminded of it.

The ever fair and balanced BBC Tech reporting for all to see how balanced they are.

While they mention the HTC prank, I had no idea they even did one to be honest but it is nice to see them get some good press these days, they ignore Google.

Not a single mention of any one of the great pranks that Google pulled today. Just more proof that the BBC is biased against Google.
The Force - the mysterious energy field used by the Jedi in Star Wars - has been discovered by researchers at the Cern laboratory in an April Fools prank.

Kirk McMaster as classy as always. I wonder how many people with a +OnePlus​ are left that don't regret getting into bed with this company?

It may take me a while to get over this prank. There are just some things you just do not joke about.

That being said +Liam Spradlin​​ has said, in the comments of the post, if anyone wants to help turn this into a real app he would be happy.

So I am calling on all developers. Please take up the charge. Bring back Reader. Charge us $4.99 and we will pay it to have our beloved app again. Or set up a Kickstarter. We really will give you our money.

Anything to make the pain go away.
 
Holy shit.

The District Judge replied: "They may have income but not one they are declaring to HMRC readily."

Well your honour, you can't have it both ways. I wonder how many of the customers they've arrested?

I'm not sure if I should be happy for being able to understand it entirely or sad that it's an April's fool, Lol

I turned my Xbox on to find I just got kicked off Live. For a moment I thought it was a slightly funny April Fools Day joke. Then I remembered today is when my Gold access ran out. Dammit.
