April Foogle's Day

Google has had a little fun today as well.

This in addition to their newly rolled out "Custom Time" application, which promises to allow Gmail users to time-date-stamp their messages as far back in the past as they please. According to the Gmail log-in page:

"Pre-date your messages
You tell us what time you would have wanted your email sent, and we'll take care of the rest. Need an email to arrive 6 hours ago? No problem.

Mark as read or unread
Take sending emails to the past one step further. We let you make emails look like they've been read all along.

Make them count
Use your custom time stamped messages wisely -- each Gmail user gets ten per year.

Worry less
Forget your finance reports. Forget your anniversary. We'll make it look like you remembered."
