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, funny how the results come out. Looks like this prank was sprung up by Philipp Lenssen.

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