Mashable has been bought up by Conan Conan O’Brien, who has ousted Pete Cashmore as CEO. Conan has said his reasons for this investment are "I’m sick and tired of scanning the Internet looking for any news about technology..." and he plans to turn Mashable into such a place.
.... yeah this about as far as I get re-telling this April fools joke with a straight face, it's a little too obvious isn't it? - points for having Conan reply to comments on the Mashable annoucement on this though, if that is him.
