Best April Fools pranks of 2015

Every year the internet is full of April Fools jokes, pranks, and hoaxes and the Verge has compiled a list of 11 of the best that we saw in 2015. Motorola, Google, Tesla, Steam, and more, all joined in on the fun this year and gave us some gems. Follow this link for all the fun of April Fools 2015.

April Fools is a wonderful and terrible day for the internet. Let's start with the terrible part: yes, there's a chance that you'll be tricked by fake news and bad pranks, and that's not really fun for anyone. But then there's the nice part: today is the one day that companies stop taking themselves so seriously. Sure, some just use it as an opportunity to beg you for retweets of a silly image. But others put a surprising amount of thought and effort into making small pranks and videos that their customers and other viewers online will have fun with. And that's pretty cool.

10 free games worth playing on Steam

Kotaku has come up with a list of the top 10 free games worth playing on Steam which should pretty much kill your entire weekend without costing you a penny. Sorry in advance.

While Steam gets a lot of hype for discounted prices, you don’t actually have to spend any money to enjoy some of the best games the service has to offer. Over the years, Steam has accumulated a number of great games that are free-to-play, and I’m here to tell you which ones you should check out. 

Some of these recommendations will be obvious, as some of Steam’s biggest games are free-to-play—so why wouldn’t I suggest them? But, I also want to make sure to tell you about the smaller free games you might otherwise not hear about, especially when it comes to games that try something new. With that in mind, here are our top free Steam games that everyone should try.

The Selfie Stick is Dead!

So glad that the "selfie" stick is on the way out, but seriously hoping that these aren't real... Please tell me they aren't real.

 

Microsoft Unveils Surface 3 - Full Windows for $500

There were rumors that Microsoft was done with the "non-Pro" Surface Tablet line and they were kind of right. Gone is Windows RT, but instead of a crippled OS, Microsoft is bringing full-on Windows 8.1 to the Surface by replacing the ARM processor with a new Intel Atom. The specs are pretty solid with a full 1080p screen powered by the new X7-Z8700 (Cherry Trail) processor. It even supports Pen input if you're into that sort of thing. It looks pretty as well as pretty solid.

With a starting price of $499, Microsoft is making a play for the entry level consumer who wants a high quality machine. Seeing as the device features that same build quality as the Pro 3, it should be a competent machine for the price. But, as with every Surface, this device does not come with a Type cover nor does the Surface 3 include a pen.

Google & ASUS Announce Chromebit

If you've wanted to get into the world of ChromeOS, but haven't wanted to drop an entire $200 on a Chromebook, ASUS and Google have teamed up to bring us the "Chromebit". This is a Chromebox-On-A-Stick that packs in a 1.8GHz CPU, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. In addition to the basics, it also has Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11ac WiFi and a full-sized USB 2.0 port. This is absolutely fantastic hardware for under $100.

When it ships this summer, the Chromebit will be available in three different colours—blue, orange and grey. Google and Asus haven’t yet announced how much the unit will retail for in Canada, but based on a post on its Chrome Blog, it appears the company’s aim is to have the Chromebit cost less than $100 everywhere it’s sold.

ASUStor AS5004T 4-Bay NAS Review

We have just posted up our review of the ASUStor AS5004T 4-Bay NAS. ASUStor ups the power on this unit away from the Intel Atom and give you incredible performance as well as a host of features that you probably won't ever use. This box is made for more that just serving files, media and websites. You can actually play Minecraft, Emulators and more; plus you can stream it all to your favorite mobile device. It's fantastic and not that expensive, but you should read our review for all the details.

We setup a four-drive RAID 5 array and used Automatic Load Balancing to get the most out of the dual Gigabit network connections and when in use at VulcLAN 2015, we managed to connect over 40 people to it and absolutely punished the NAS with some crazy heavy load. It didn't hiccup, flinch or hesitate at all. Performance was top notch. While ASUStor has labeled this drive in their 'Home to Power User' performance tier, it can easily be used in a small business for data backup, central storage, cloud storage, media serving and more.

Apple Might Be Releasing a New iPhone 6C

If you believe the rumor mill, it loks like Apple just may be releasing a successor to the iPhone 5C (which they cancelled). According to sources, a new "6C" could be coming and arrive in the 4-inch form factor. As much as this could make sense, I don't see Apple doing as they scrapped the 5C due to low sales volumes. Then again, if you bundle one of these with an Apple Watch Sport, it may just make a few extra sales.

According to Future Supplier, the obtained casing looks very similar to what is currently available on the iPhone 5C. The only notable differences that can be seen that suggests this could be the rear housing of a refresh model is the additional speaker perforations on the bottom and an update to the camera flash cutout.
