Today is April 1st. And for some unknown reason, that means that every news and media site in existence has to create false stories. I have taken the more amusing ones I found and put them ALL in this article. Read if you like.

Cell phone adventures Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Wednesday, March 30 2005 @ 07:58 PM EST
Contributed by: glosser

John Carmack, lead programmer/owner of id Software(creators of first person shooter genre), has updated his website with a critique of Java after using it to create a DOOM-RPG experiment for cell phones.
