April Fools

April Fools DayWell the 1st of April has come and gone. Many tried to play pranks, some tried to avoid them and no doubt many are still claiming that they weren't fooled but were simply playing along ;) right...

Sometimes however fact really is stranger than fiction. But not with the addition of CADIE. This Panda was going to revolutionize many Google products by quietly doing all the mundane chores that you don't like. Removing red-eye from Picassa or answering email on your behalf. The actual homepage for CADIE was amusing, it looked like something from GeoCities, or pretty much anything designed (if you call it that?) in the late 90's early 2000's. Bright, in your face and flashing every little available pixel.

On the flip side... Google now announce that they are due to cut some 200 jobs. I guess it's not always fun and games - even at Google.

Barry Schwartz, an avid Mac fan, of Search Engine Round Table even found time to set up the BSOD for Windows visitors. Ha... Although I can say I've been working on this machine for almost 2 years and never had a BSOD - I can't believe it myself ;)
