No Aprils Fools Day hint Site News
OK, I'll admit it: I don't have Rob's talent and passion for producing great April Fool's Day prank hints, so I won't make a fool out of myself by trying to match him at it. I apologize for breaking tradition; maybe if I start now I'll have some for next year.

In the meantime, here is a list of some of the past prank hints, including this gem from last year.

I'll instead exercise a bit of historical geekery by point to this collection of speculations on the origins of this most special of celebrations, which appears to have been mentioned by Chaucer in 1392.

If only the entire rest of the internet was brave enough to admit that, you know what? April Fools jokes just aren't funny anymore.

THANK YOU.

At least one of the last year's April Fool's hints really works this year:

"Show Beatles music in iTunes Store
What it does: The recent release of iTunes 9.1 includes a hidden pref that enables purchase of Beatles music in the iTunes Store -- apparently the music is in late beta, and will soon be generally available. But why wait when you can get it now?
Terminal command: defau1ts write com.apple.iTunes AppleCorps -bool TRUE
Credit: Reader wishes to remain anonymous (probably someone at Apple!)"

But you have to use "theDayYouNeverForget" instead of "AppleCorps".
