April Fools Day

Unlike the GMail storage increase, Google Gulp is one of the first big April Fools jokes floating around the internet this year:

"At Google our mission is to organize the world's information and make it useful and accessible to our users. But any piece of information's usefulness derives, to a depressing degree, from the cognitive ability of the user who's using it. That's why we're pleased to announce Google Gulp (BETA)™ with Auto-Drink™ (LIMITED RELEASE), a line of "smart drinks" designed to maximize your surfing efficiency by making you more intelligent, and less thirsty."

Looks as though Wikipedia has been bought by Encyclopedia Britannica...

"On April 1, 2005, Encyclopædia Britannica - The Free Encyclopædia announced its immediate semi-hostile takeover of the Wikimedia Foundation and all of its projects (now to be called Britannican reference subdivisions), including Wikipedia (now called Wikipædia)"
