Google seems to take the April’s Fool Day very seriously. π They did two practical jokes, and I’m wondering how many people did fall for it.
First, was the Toilet Internet Service Provider, or TiSP. Yes that was a practical joke, of course. π
Second, they posted this page about a new service: Gmail on paper. “You Click. We Stack., You Get” it’s just another practical joke, not an actual service.
Seems that the people at google have a great sense of humor. Just look at the info they provide about these “services”:
But what about the environment?
Not a problem. Gmail Paper is made out of 96% post-consumer organic soybean sputum, and thus, actually helps the environment. For every Gmail Paper we produce, the environment gets incrementally healthier.
Google has a long tradition of April Fool’s day. Their hoaxes include:
- 2000: Google MentalPlex
- 2002: Pigeon Rank
- 2004: Google Lunar/Copernicus Center
- 2005: Google Gulp
- 2006: Google Romance
- 2007: Gmail Paper
- 2007: Google TiSP
Details about the hoaxes can be found on wikipedia.
