Check the calendar to understand RIM/Microsoft and other deals

No, hell isn't freezing over, and Research In Motion isn't going Windows. Despite a posting at claiming RIM is introducing a Windows Mobile-based Blackberry, CNBC did some fact checking and discovered it is an April Fool's joke. Joining this story are similar rumors on Microsoft adopting the iPhone OS (hah! No.), Apple adopting Windows Mobile (hah hah! No.), and Google and Richard Branson sponsoring a manned mission to Mars (hah hah hah..... maybe? No.)

Today is not a good day to be reading the news a skepticism deficit. You have been warned.
