WARNING: On Public WiFi? Your News May Be Hacked

Meet Newstweek, a hidden device engineered to hack news items being read at public WiFi hotspots (cafes, libraries, airports, etc.). Both nefarious and tech-saavy, the ingenious mechanism wasn't fathered by a group of web hackers, but rather a pair of Berlin artists, Julian Oliver and Danja Vasiliev. The duo are interested in exploiting the "trustworthiness" of big media outlets in order to demonstrate the vulnerability of relying on just a few dominant networks.

News: Evil Google Prank of the Century: Turn Your Ex Into a Meme

After an assumedly nasty break up, Jack Weppler's ex-girlfriend decided to smite him in the most public way possible.

News: Apartheid in New York City

Pranking is good. Pranking in New York City is even better. These jesters with too much time on their hands decided to force segregation on the mean streets of Manhattan. You may recall "Frozen in Grand Central" and "No Pants", two events which helped create a name for these out of work thespians. The genesis for Improv Everywhere happened nine years ago when one of the founders decided to tell the ladies in the bar that he was musician Ben Folds during one late night of drinking. Ummm. It wo...

News: April Fool's Gets Butt Naked on the Subway

This past April Fool's Day, practical jokesters Improv Everywhere sent over 1,000 people to ride the subway without any underwear or pants in New York City. The joke?
