Apple has been denied a trademark for the popular iPad Mini by the US Patent and Trademark Office.

The trademark application for the tablet was turned down because the name was "merely descriptive" and did not create a unique meaning, it said.

Now if the patent office could strike down the patent on rounded corners...

Meh, that post was just boring, only amusing part about the merger joke was that we had some envy members joining etc.
But I was refering to the twitter account, has nothing to do with the april fools joke.

That said, Totalbiscuit tweeted something interesting I agree with.
"Since the advent of the internet, April Fools has become less about funny pranks and more "HEY, WATCH ME LIE ABOUT THIS THING""

So, you going to tank the ten man raid, Treckie?

...

I'm so glad that Crabby was there to tell me I'm geared enough for the last expansion's 5 man heroics, I'd never have dared to sign up for one otherwise.

The fact that Method now has a repeat kill on Lei Shen and Blood Legion still hasn't taken him down warms my heart.

It's cool though.. maybe in 2027 when next to no one plays this game anymore they'll get a world first that matters.

Don't get terribly excited, it's just a formality in the process. They'll get it.

Of course, 4-1 joke. It would be interesting.. but..

It could be the kind of tease April 1 joke, since nothing about it has the over-the-top key things of the usual jokes. Also gives you the name of the next xpac. :-) Too good to be true.

Them taking it down is likely in regards to my amusement. Blizz is getting bombarded with "Is Hearthstone an April Fools's joke?" posts. So much so they they might have taken down any that they had.

Or perhaps just a fake accidental leak as an April 1 joke? :lol:

Yeah, I was thinking it actually sounds interesting. Though Rage as a resource seems very unlikely.

The other thing is that they likely would not be that far along for the next xpac, in regards of having a class page ready to "leak".

The accidental leak is probably the real April 1st joke here.

It doesn't even say anywhere that it's a pet class, so it's an odd picture to have there.

This is definitely NSFW. It is also hilarious.

Actual conversation in the office:

Boss: "This build has been unusual. Like really unusual."
Me: "As in so few issues?"
Boss: "Yeah."
Me: "But, ideally, isn't our job *supposed to be* boring?"
Boss: "Well, yeah, but the problem is now *I'm* bored."
