It’s April the First. April Fools’ Day. Every email, every tweet, every announcement and every conversation is viewed through the lens of suspicion today. Here’s every tech “joke” we’ve spotted so far.

More nonsense from Google Australia. Our friends over at Lifehacker have a bunch more Google pranks.

George Brandis bought a spy pen, Malcolm Turnbull bought a 3G modem, Kanye bought a mirror and more! Lifehacker has a whole bunch.
