The best April Fools' announcements in tech?
At the time, it was mind blowing. Compared to things like Yahoo and Microsoft's offerings (which was about 25MB?), Google was offering 1GB of free email? What!? Amazing. But surely it wasn't real. It was announced on April Fools' day.
Fortunately, it ended up being real and it was a pretty amazing option for free email. Let's not forget that their spam filtering options were (and always have been) pretty robust, which made it much more enjoyable to use than other email services. It's kind of hard to believe Gmail is 10 years old!
Anyway, that particular April Fools' announcement ended up being real. There have been many fake ones. What are some that you've enjoyed the most?
Also, even though this is a cop out, I'm actually somewhat partial to HTC and Samsung's announcements this year... only because they're almost exactly the same.
