A vocal MacLife.com reader took us to task on Wednesday for reporting a well-sourced rumor about UI changes that may be coming with iOS 7, which is believed to be behind schedule as well. That got us thinking about coverage of Apple rumors here, which we tend to shy away from in all but the most high-profile cases that are backed up with reliable sources. (Not always possible, but we try!) So we'll throw it out to the readers: Want a rumor or two here and there with your news coverage, or should we stick to the basics and leave the wild speculation up to sites dedicated to such coverage? Make your voice heard in the comments, folks!
If you weren't paying attention to the calendar on Monday, you might have woke up and thought any number of these clever pranks were the real thing -- so here's a few of the tech-related gags we got a chuckle out of.

No, you won't get stabbed for missing out on these hot news stories from the Ides of March. Still, don't go missing any more of 'em if you want to stay healthy, know what we're saying? We're saying, you could miss out and feel sick about it. What'd you think we were saying?
Well, what a lame way to end an otherwise normal Wednesday on the internet. As of July 1, Google will shut down its ubiquitous RSS service, Reader. After almost 8 years as the go-to spot for keeping tabs on everything from news to blogs, we'll all have to find a new way to gobble up internet information later this year.
For some time now, Android users have enjoyed the benefits of Google Now. As a personal digital assistant, the service is a handy alternative to Apple's Siri, providing all kinds of up-to-date information. If a purportedly leaked video is the real deal, iOS users may be able to check out Google Now in the near future.
