  • Google's Awesome April Fools

    As always Google is at it again this year:

    1. Turn on Google Instant Search and in the auto complete box there will be a link to "We are hiring autocompleters!"

    2. Gmail login pages have a link for Gmail Motion.

    3. This little gem has shown up as well: [link]

    4. Youtube 1911 [link] including the top viral videos of 1911.

    Can't wait to see what others surface.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    I saw the 1911 thing on YouTube; thought it was kinda dumb. It also let's you "1911-ize" any video you're watching (with a tinkly piano audio overlay and a sepia tone and fake film scratches video overlay). Kinda cute, but not particularly April Foolish in my eyes.

      Another one we just found... if you do a google search for "Comic Sans" all the results are returned in Comic Sans font.

          I thought that is would be voted the most likely April Fools Day product to be turned into a real product.

            Meh...I think Google Corp itself has become an April Fool. Time to move on...Bing or AltaVista for me now.
