Remember that IQ study that showed Internet Explorer users were stupid? Well, it was a hoax. The website of AptiQuant, the supposed "online psychometric testing firm" that conducted the study, was just set up in the past month, and the pictures of its staff were actually ripped-off from another French business.
So, they got us. But they also got CNN, the BBC, the Daily Mail, HuffPo and about every other news outlet on the internet. If you check out their elaborate website, and the six-page (PD) IQ report you'll see why. Personally, I chose to believe it because who would go through hours and hours of effort for such a weird hoax? Is this all a viral campaign for Safari? [BBC]
