You don't know tech: The InfoWorld news quiz


Any week in which April Fool's falls is deeply suspect in terms of news. But we're pretty sure we weren't hoodwinked in this week's quiz, which covers topics from the dark (worms, botnets, spammers) to the light (dating services, IPOs, and dishy redheads). Can you tell the real news from the fake? Give yourself 10 points for each correct answer. No foolin'. OK, let's go.

1. It was a Foolish week, all right. Which of the following "news" stories was NOT just an April Fool's joke?

b. Amazon launches Floating Amazon Cloud Environment

c. Twitter joins federal emergency response network
