WMPU will be an April’s Fools Day Free Zone today



April’s Fools Day has been a bit of fun for years, but recently has begun to jump the shark. Sure, one joke inserted in 10 stories of real news is fine and fun, but when every story is false it can get irritating.

We therefore pledge WMPU will be an April’s Fools Day free zone today, even if that means every story has to be an editorial 😉

To help our readers out, we will also post a list of Windows Phone stories which stretch our credulity a bit below.
