TiVo SuperAdvance Best of April Fool's, Conficker the Worst

PC virus falls flat while new TiVo model reportedly records future broadcasts


My favorite tech ruse for Fool's Day is by Steve Fox at PCWorld: A new TiVo model that can record shows that haven't broadcast yet

My least favorite is the Conficker PC virus, whose authors included an April 1 update that had many respected security experts predicting major problems today. Elinor Mills at CNet has an early report on the virus proving to be a bust.
