    I never bothered to look, but now that it's gone, can someone please tell me what the testing area was all about?

    Well, I sure got pwned.

    I was 100% that this wasn't April fools - it looked so legit. Off to the testing area!

    Which part was legit? The part where nowhere on CNET was this mentioned, or the fact that it was on April 1?
