Has anyone told Daniel~ yet lol.
It just goes to show you can't believe everything you see / read on the net.

It does show that AOA is well read and well respected around the comunity. I laughed when I clicked on the L'inq of the latest article and ended back up here.

It has certainly brought a lot of traffic with what 135 people viewing the thread as guests as i post!

Well, here's an example of the fine quality of reporting that AMDZone is, I'm sure, renowned for:

"The Inquirer reports that the Abit Socket AM2 board picture was indeed a fake. A good idea I suppose when you are trying to drum up traffic for your site. Break NDA, or come up with a fake product. Those two methods seem to be hot these days."

It's awfully easy to take pot-shots when you don't bother to get all the details....

I'd cottoned this one from the outset and I think we know who the photo-chopper is and just be said its not mainland UK and one his favourite typesets for artwork has give him away too easy!

Why not just read the header? All Photochopped pic have a digital signature. I don't think it matters, really.

It was posted on teh reatailer's site...they have since updated it to say it was a joke. So all's well.

SHould'a said that in the first place.
