As usual, there are lots of interesting April Fools’ Day jokes around. Here are 3 that I found amusing.
- The UK newspaper, Guardian, is about to switch completely to using Twitter for news and are even in the process of converting its old news archives, dating back to 1821. Old articles that have been converted include: “OMG Hitler invades Poland, allies declare war see tinyurl.com/b5x6e for more” and “JFK assassin8d @ Dallas, def. heard second gunshot from grassy knoll WTF?”. This is the best joke I’ve heard this year.
- Google now allows you to search your brain. You are, however, requested not to use Brain Search on others without their permission.
- In a shocking development, Warner Bros acquires The Pirate Bay. It was the only way they could deal with the dismal showing of the prosecution against the Pirate Bay in the ongoing trial.
Somehow, I found Google’s joke this year to be less funny than previous years, including last years’ search the future joke. Maybe it’s getting old.
Update: Another good one is Opera’s Face Gestures.
