April Fool's Day is upon us, and that means that you can never be too sure if anything you read today is true or bogus. Everyone from Google and Hulu to Funny or Die and Groupon have come up with their own gags, and here's a look at some of the ones circulating this morning. If you see any other notable April Fool's Day jokes, let us know in the comments.
Chromercise: In a throw-back to Jane Fonda and the Jazzercise era, Google is helping you get your fingers limbered up for some searching with Chromercise. Strap on your most flattering 80s fingerwarmers and Google-fied headbands, and feel the burn.
YouTube: While you might think that YouTube was founded in the last decade, it actually dates back to 1911, when videos of horse and buggy crashes and pre-talkie fruit conversations dominated the airwaves. And of course, pets were still able to play instruments with ease; trumpet cat ftw.
Autocompleter: You thought those auto-completes on Google were done by an algorithm? Nah, it's just Michael, an auto-completer at Google. He started out as a spell checker, but now provides users with suggestions as they type. Michael averages about 34,000 words per minute and goes through a keyboard every eight days.
Comic Sans for Everyone: As we all know, comic sans is everyone's favorite font. As a result, Google will roll it out as its default fonts across all Google products, effective April 4. It's live for a few lucky people in the Google Labs Trusted Tester Beta Preview Sandbox program, so check it out.
Gmail Motion: Typing and using a mouse to write emails? Blech. With Gmail Motion, you can use your Webcam and simple movements to tell Gmail what to write. To open an email, move your hands like your opening an envelope. To reply, point your thumb behind you; use both hands to reply all.
Fans of Razer’s Boomslang run, don’t walk to get yourself a CE (Collector’s Edition) 2007. It features an 1800 dpi 3G infrared sensor, a 32KB Razer Synapse onboard memory, 5 programmable hyperesponse non-slip buttons, 1000Hz ultrapolling /1 ms response, a speed of 5.8 megapixels per second, 15g of acceleration, and a16 bit ultra-wide data path. The mouse is also ambidextrous, features a 7 foot, non-tangle cord, and has the unique look of the Boomslang. There will only be a total of 10,000 available, each with a unique serial code, certificate of ownership, and comes enclosed in a matte black metal box for $99.99.
By the way, we just learned that the initial collection has sold out, but they have decided to offer more towards the end of the month. We suppose that means you can make it an easy lope over to the Razer Zone.
