Google’s Two Other Pranks

Google had two more pranks on top 2008-04-01_125536.jpgof the New Custom Time Messages. The other two pranks are gDay with MATE and Google Wake Up Kit.  gDay with Mate is an advanced search engine from which you can select one day in advance search option. It’s the search engine of the future. After giving a lengthy explanation of the gDay technology and how the internet will look, once you click the link to get started Google lets you know it was all a practical joke and how you can send it tcal.jpgo you friends to get them too. I actually didn’t fall for this prank or the Wake Up Kit that I will write about bellow, but I did fall for the Custom Time Messages,  sadly it was a feature I actually looked forward to it.

Anyway the Wake Up Kit is a relentless wake up notification from Google Calander to get you up from bed if you have problems waking up. If the person is not woken up by the sms they will receive from Google, then more extreme measures will be taken. For instance, a bed-flipping device to finally wake the person up. Hehehehe, Google is hilarious.They did really good pranks this year for April Fool’s day.
