April Fools

As usual on april 1st, i forgot. and got a bit confused by certain reported stories. then woke up and went looking for the best of the april fool's articles.

The Guardian got me til i spotted the author's name. because let's face it, this is actually just the sort of thing you would expect after last week's madness.

Speaking of Google, they really upped the ante by creating a whole site and inviting us all to join them on mars ("the open source planet").
