April Fools!

I've been a fan of Google's April 1 jokes for quite sometime, but I must admit this years prank was lacking. Chrome in 3D is funny, but I have to admit the pranks from The Guardian and The Pirate Bay were far better.

In case you haven't heard, Pirate Bay was acquired by Warner Bros. The best April Fools pranks are the ones that seem so true they making you actually think it's a possibility. Such was the case with this bogus prank.

The best prank, however, was The Guardian, who announced that they will be entirely published via Twitter post! Sadly, I think they just might be on to a trend, and I could actually see a newspaper doing this in a few years.

Today's other classic pranks:

Here's a good one: Rush Limbaugh to speak at Sojourner's Mobilaztion to End Poverty.

At first I thought it was legit, until Rush started quoting Kanye West.

The announcement of the Gmail Autopilot email response system is pretty good: http://mail.google.com/mail/help/autopilot/index.html
