April Fool's Day: best jokes round-up

April Fool's Day: best jokes round-up
Floating gravity-defying iPhone 5S? A lineup of devices designed for pets? A microwave oven by Nokia? All is possible today as virtually every tech website on the web is trying to fool you. The big ones like Google are not bucking the trend and have come out with even more hilarious videos. Google this year had not one or two, but four video surprises for the most naive ones who forgot to check their calendar.

But it’s not just them, the internet is a small madness and we can imagine colleague bloggers and authors giggling over comments or reposts of fake ‘breaking stories.’

Let’s be honest - we have joined in too in both fooling and being fooled! Let’s not get too serious then and just take a look at all the fun the web has to offer today. All below.

In my opinion, the best are : "YouTube is closing, turns out to have been an eight-year competition" and "Google Nose". Anyway, April Fools! :P

My favorites are the GameFAQs poll about how people feel about EA having acquired Nintendo and George Takei's announcement that he'll appear in Star Wars 7.

Not really off topic, the ones I mentioned just happen to not be on the list, still the same topic.

Nokia's microwave's name is ... 5AM-TH1N6 = SAM- THING = SAMSUNG ? It has an 8-core voltage transformer... = Samsung again exynos octa ? The device comes with the latest eye-tracking technology, which stops the food from rotating when you look at it... LOL Samsung ?

You did good PA, you did good. But i think the jokes should've been published, like, yesterday or the day before to make it more interesting. I fell for the Youtube closure!
