    It's April Fool's Day
    I just got baited by an April Fool's prank and lost 20 minutes chasing down the non-existent scandal.

    Pay attention, today more than usual, and take an extra pause before responding to stuff.

    ""Gmail Motion will free the regular user from the constraints that modern society and our interfaces with our machines have put on the human body," she says.

    A link on Google's home page directs a user to the blog post explaining Gmail Motion, which promises to "turn your email into a true body of work."

    Google is renowned for its April Fool's jokes, which over the years have included job applications for positions on the Moon and the revelation that its Internet search rankings are compiled by pigeons.

    I don't think Google +1 is an April Fools joke. But Gmail was introduced on April 1, 2004 and everyone thought it might be a joke and it was very real.

    Someone (me) posted an official looking notice next to our office printer informing users that the voice recognition software upgrade had been installed. It had instructions on how to train the printer to know your voice...

    Downloaded it from the net...

    I thought it was funny...

    It is. I can just imagine some one yelling at the printer with a group of people behind him trying to keep from laughing

    The printer thing is hilarious!

    I got the Hootsuite April fool's email today...the subject line was 'confidential', and in the email they stated how they're switching platforms, abandoning Hootsuite, and launching a game app called "happy owls".

    A few minutes later, a follow-up email came stating to disregard the email as it was only for 'friends and investors'.

    Got me to chuckle
