Being in Australia is tough sometimes. We can't get anything shipped here, everything takes longer to come out, and worst of all: we have to suffer through two April Fools' Days. Aussie tech companies had a few decent attempts at jokes yesterday, and now the big American tech companies are getting into it. Here are some of the more acceptable ones.
Samsung Galaxy Blade Edge
This is the real cutting edge. It's the "ultimate cooking companion", and features a diamond-edge blade and plenty of handles.
More April Fools' gags need cute dogs.
Still better than the PlayStation TV.
Google had a heap of stunts this year. This extension allows your Chromebook to "self-browse" and run amok on the internet.
Ok, this one actually made me laugh.
Google Fiber Dial-Up Mode
Remember when we used to make a cup of tea while we waited for the internet to load? Some Aussies never forgot, but Google is bringing that nostalgia back to its Fiber users with Dial-Up Mode.
Google Reverse Mode
Go to com.google right now. Do it.
Airbnb Retro Mode
If Airbnb had been invented in the 1960's, this is what it would have looked like.
CERN Working With The Force
If you thought that Large Hadron Collider was for discovering the origin of the universe, think again.
