There's no shortage of tech news that seems too strange to be true. Can you tell the real headlines from the ringers this week?

Each week in tech we see truth that is stranger than fiction.

Another major corporation suffers an embarrassing breach of customer information. Another device maker launches a product that leaves people scratching their heads and saying, "What?" A major cloud service provider gets hacked, leaving a trail of naked celebrity selfies in its wake.

With news like this, it's pretty hard to tell what's real and what is the figment of a fevered imagination.

That's why we're bringing you another Real or Fake? quiz. Each slide has one real headline and three fakes. See if you can spot the real tech headline. Reminder: We trust you not to use Google, and not to scroll ahead for the answers.

When you're done, let us know how you score in the comments section below.

Have fun!

Re: I'd believe anything about Apple
@Susan. great quiz.  To my surprise I got most of them wrong, even the apple one.  Some technology news are so crazy, I thought to myself, these news had to be real.

I'd believe anything about Apple
I knew the Apple headline had to be among the real ones because every combination of words with "Apple Watch" has been published somewhere on the web in the last few days.
