Not getting enough silliness from your friends for April Fool’s Day? Google, YouTube and LinkedIn have all contributed some new media takes on the April 1st routine.
YouTube, for instance, is offering the top viral videos of 1911.
Google has several entries in the April 1 joke lottery. For instance, there is this video of Google’s Product Manager, Paul McDonald introducing “Gmail motion.” It claims that using your computer camera and a spacial tracking algorithm, you can handle your gmail with body gestures alone.
Or take a look at Google’s video ad for “autocompleters,” who go through a keyboard about every eight days filling in those instant responses manually. Uh huh.
And if you are a member of LinkedIn, log in and click on your contacts-add connections tab and pick “People you might know.” Mine include Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, Hemingway, J.R.R. Tolkein, Groucho Marx, and Robin Hood.
