It's hard enough to separate fact from fiction on the 'net today so I'm not even going to try. Nor am I creative enough to come up with my own joke, so I'll just link to others I found amusing.
Infoworld gets the top nod for their announcement that Microsoft and Yahoo have reached a merger agreement. Still at the top of Techmeme! Nice.
Mike Arrington of Techcrunch has announced he'll be suing Facebook for $25 million.
The traditional Google jokes this year weren't particularly funny; a Virgin Atlantic trip to Mars is just sort of "huh?" (although the application has a few good bits). I have to admit that their other one, Gmail's "Custom Time" feature which allows you to send e-mail from the past, got me at first: I assumed it was just a feature, not in other e-mail applications, to specify the time at which to send the message.
Finally, PC World announces that OOXML will be approved by ISO as an international document format standard. While that one is actually technically true, from another perspective it is, indeed, still a joke.
