To celebrate my favorite online holiday (April Fools Day, of course) I wanted to take time to reference some of the reasons why today is awesome. Now that we have a blog up, I’d like to start keeping a record of these pranksters from year to year, even though I am pretty sure I will never forget Gmail Motion or Reba or Die. Here are this year’s top picks.


My favorite this year is YouTube shutting down. Sad face. Watch live the nominees for the best uploaded video from the past 8 years. I can’t believe they are no longer accepting entries.

Google Nose

Come to your senses and accept that smelling is believing with Google Nose.


Netflix suggestions were added for today’s holiday. I was able to get a few different shots below. Who doesn’t want to watch an Epic Nicolas Cage Meltdown? Amazing.

Gmail Blue

Gmail Blue brings a complete redesign of email without changing a thing. I can’t believe I waited this long for this.

Google Wallet Mobile ATM

The Google Wallet Mobile ATM will forever end your need for a bank or ATM. The Google Wallet Mobile ATM technology allows you to enter the amount of money you want to withdraw directly from your phone or you can use a voice-activated dispenser. Convenient? I think so!
