On Being Pwned by Robo Wunderkind

As we sat down to work this morning, a loud shout of “Oh My God!!!” lifted all of our yet-to-be over-caffeinated heads simultaneously. “Robo Wunderkind just got bought out by Lego for $120 million!” our colleague yelled after reading this post on “TechCrunch.”

What luck! Why, we’d just published an article about Robo Wunderkind in our April issue. Boom! Imagine: a monthly magazine getting the scoop on TechCrunch and Future Zone! How exciting.

Just one little problem. What’s the date today? DOH!

Pretty clever publicity stunt, we got to admit 🙂
