Beware, it's April Fools' Day!


With the iPad launch just two days away and new iPad news flooding the net almost every hour, we want to remind all our readers that today is April Fools' Day -- so take what you hear with a grain of salt. The web is already bursting with April Fools' pranks. Some of my favorites are:

Google Translate for Animals -- an Android app that translates animal sounds into human speech using Google's "animal linguistic database."

The Dharma Initiative Alarm Clock -- there's only two settings: one-minute warning and electromagnetic cataclysm mode.

Google Street View in 3D -- go to Street View on and Google Map and you'll see a 3D icon. Glasses not included.

Google Mobile Search "Where am I?" -- you'll be surprised to find where you are.

The iCade, iPad Arcade Cabinet -- Donkey Kong never looked so good.

Starbucks introduces the plenta and the micra - new coffee sizes for the modern appetite

Besides a day for pranks, April 1, 2010 is Apple's 34th anniversary. Apple was founded this on this day in 1976. Happy anniversary Apple!
