Sooooooo... tomorrow, it's again the first of April, perhaps better known as April foolsday. It's that day we celebrated a year ago, too. Anyway, at that day, a lot of tech companies join the fun and create some jokes. A lot of the are funny, but...

 

...some of them aren't. "Which do you mean?" you may ask. Well, those that seems to define the meaning of "fun" according to Google. Year after year, I get realy anoyed by the sh*tload of "jokes" Google launches this first April. Last time I checked, it was about making jokes so people would only realize the day AFTER that it was a joke. Googles "jokes" are so obvious, it's no fun anymore. What do you guys think about Googles jokes?

I think.. they are pretty funny, and for those not so tech inclined.. they may believe them.  Also, never really "celebrated" april fools day.. not really my thing.

I like them for the most part. Yes it's predictable that Google will do something, but I enjoy the creativity that they put in to it.

My favorite was the 8-bit Google Maps, in the style of old video game maps.

Gmail now supports Shelfies!

You all love setting selfies as your custom theme in Gmail, but you’ve told us there’s one major problem: there isn’t a way to share your selfie with others. As the pioneering platform for selfies, Gmail is committed to being at the forefront of innovation in the selfie space. And we think it's a tragedy that your handsome hair, luscious lashes and beautiful brows have been trapped in your own inbox. Until now, that is. Today, we’re proud to free your selfies by launching Gmail Shelfie, the SHareable sELFIE.
