April Fool’s Day es toda una tradición en Google. Cada 1 de abril, hasta el más pequeño de sus proyectos reserva el día para gastar una broma a sus usuarios. Suelen ser productos inventados que no engañan a nadie o algún añadido divertido a la web. Pero este año, la de Gmail ha salido terriblemente mal.
Sometimes, people don’t get your joke—and that seems to have happened to Google today. Its joke Mic Drop feature in Gmail, which muted the conversation and sent out a silly gif, seems to have caused more stresses than smiles. Now, Google has backpedalled and scrapped the prank.
Back in the 19th century, April Fools Day was way more vicious. People could get maimed and even killed. In that spirit, we have a list of fun April Fools Day pranks to play with technology. Enough with the hokey plastic-wrap-over-the-toilet-seat nonsense. These ideas will really liven up April Fools.
Hoy es 1 de abril. Hace poco leí a alguien decir en algún lugar que "April Fools no existe en Japón". Oh, ¡qué equivocado estaba! En realidad April Fools ha existido durante décadas en Japón y es bastante popular en la Internet.http://es.gizmodo.com/los-trolls-en-…

Take heed, because there's a lot of bad stuff out there on the internet today. But there's one thing that's very good and useful: it's Gmail, and today your favorite email service is celebrating its tenth birthday.
Hoy es 1 de Abril, ya sabes, April Fools' Day en el mundo anglosajón, el equivalente al día de los Santos Inocentes. Eso significa que Internet está plagado de bromas y noticias falsas supuestamente graciosas. Google se ha unido a la tradición con una curiosa broma que puede resultar muy adictiva: encontrar Pokémon en…
It's April Fools, the day where everyone tries to be funny — and some folks actually succeed. Thankfully we've rounded up the best of the internet's jokes, so you don't have to spend time sifting through all the lies and crazy. So, what did Think Geek come up with this year.

Si te has dado un paseo por la Red lo habrás visto, hoy es el April Fool´s Day, el día de los inocentes en EE.UU. Como todos los años, hay decenas de bromas sobre tecnología, pero las modas impuestas a veces cansan. Algunas son realmente ingeniosas, pero en la mayoría las compañías solo compiten por notoriedad.

YouTube and GoogleMaps are getting the ball rolling today. According to the release above, YouTube is not actually a video viewing and sharing site, but an 8-year contest to find the best video anyone can make. And GoogleMaps now has a treasure map layer. Nice, we see what you did there. [CNET]
So April Fools' Day fell on a weekend this year. Instead of backtracking through all the pranks and gags of yesterday, we've compiled the best of the best for you right here. Behold, an orbital bed and breakfast and the most apocalyptic BBC headline ever.
Be happy. You have survived another close call with asteroid destruction: the April Fools Day asteroid—technically called 2012 EG5—passed today at half the distance between the Earth and the Moon: 143,000 miles.
Mark my words, this year's ThinkGeek April Fool's prank will wind up coming real—just like that Tauntaun sleeping bag. The only question is whether Apple will be a spoilsport and stop kids from getting a miniature sense of what it's like to queue up for a shiny new iProduct. All because of copyright protection blah…

Dear internet, please give up on April Fool's jokes. YouTube's is untoppable: A "text-only mode" that renders videos as colored ASCII art. Clever, gorgeous, perverse.
As part of what is apparently an April Fool's Day Prank over at Google Japan, they've made a pretty impressive drumset keyboard, complete with emoticon keys.
Sensing a cash money opportunity, the folks at ThinkGeek are going to take a shot at actually producing their April Fool's Star Wars Tauntaun Sleeping bag. Lucasfilm is the only thing standing in their way.
