Forget Buzz, forget Wave. Here comes Gmail Motion. I hope this goes live soon!

Google does its part to combat the obesity epidemic. Now you break a sweat just managing your documents ;)

PS: yeah I'm aware of the date.

I'm sorry, but after the Panda crap update I'm not in the mood for Google jokes.

I call a 10 year moratorium on April 1st 'jokes.' They just aren't funny any more.

Now I feel the Google jokes like those my banker does about mortgages. Whatever they do, always costs me more money. Not funny at all.

That was a pretty sorry effort, one of these bad ideas that nobody inside google had the guts to say

"it's crap, scrap it and get back to work"

When large faceless multinationals try to be funny, it is nearly always BAD

Yeah, somehow nobody seems to be in the mood for April fools jokes these days. Our local newspaper always had several April fools jokes, this time it's only a box saying that this years 1. April edition doesn't contain any jokes.

They should've done something really 'awesome' like "Gmail Contactfest! All your contacts' info publicly available for everyone to see!"

Oh wait, they already did that last year... Buzzz.

Enter a search query at google.com and watch the autocomplete suggestions: they're hiring autocompleters!

Seems that Google goes for quantity this year. There's a wikipedia entry [en.wikipedia.org] listing them all.

How'bout this for an April Fool's joke? Everyone use Bing instead of Google for just one day?

This is plain stupid. Instead of wasting time on this april's fool crap they should be doing something about scrapers...
