Google's April Fools Jokes?

Last year today Google launched Gmail, we covered it under the title of GMail - Google Email Service to Offer 1GB Mail for Free - Not a Hoax. Today is April Fools day in 2005 and a bunch of Google pranks have been released.

(1) Google Gulp a new sports drink released by Google. This seems to be the only real Google prank out there, by Google.

(2) Google increased Gmail to 2GB, at least battellemedia says its no hoax. In fact, I see my read "You are currently using 15 MB (1%) of your 1331 MB." So its more then 1GB right now.

(3) Released this morning http://www.googleaprilfools.com/, funny how the results come out. Looks like this prank was sprung up by Philipp Lenssen.

(4) Let's not forget http://www.undergoos.com/, the place to go to buy your Underwear. This is not by Google, but check em out.

Chris is right, the new April Fool's joke is the free hi-speed wireless internet that you flush down the tiolet. You realize it's a joke when it says, "and a NANOBOT should be there within 15 minutes." Very funny joke actually because it looks realiscit enough!

Google TiSP (BETA) is a fully functional. April Fool’s April Fool’s Day is a big holiday at Google. This year you saw the toilet broadband service. http://www.google.com/tisp/install.html I thought it was pretty good! In fact i thought it was real for a second. I actually did not have time to look it over so i made a note to do so today when i got to the office. I said google dsl... hrmmm sounds good. As i went to look for it today i noticed i was fooled! Nice one Google ;p Michael Wilson
