Here it is again, April 1st – the one day of the year where the already dubious information on the internet is more dubious than a dubious cat dubiously playing the piano. So who provided the most questionable information? Why no other than Google of course, the provider of information!
Google have played a total of 11 pranks today by our count – here are our favourite three.
1) Google Maps in 8 bit
Perhaps the most elaborate of today’s Google pranks, the search engine giant’s claim to have created Google Maps for Famicom/NES with a browser enabled trial version is nothing short of genius.
2) Chrome Multitask Mode
Secondly we have Multitasking for Chrome. Whilst the claim that we only use 50% of our hands while browsing may not be entirely accurate *cough*, the option to use two mice to double productivity certainly is amusing.
3) Gmail Tap
No matter how large of a screen a smart phone may have, it is certainly difficult to comfortably fit a full qwerty keyboard into the display. The answer, revert to two buttons and write using morse code!
