The move is in response to its marketing department's "extensive reasearch over the last three quarters" that its "audience is strangely disproportionately skewed toward males."

Those Hello Kitty gadget owners are bound to become new Slashdot devotees.

CNET, by the way, is also in the Fools' Day spirit.
