      Ok, so this isn’t the typical video question but it IS April first right…? This forum helped me so much until now, I thought I’d ask you something about April 1st….

      Is this an April fools prank??

      Sick of paying for broadband that you have to, well, pay for?

      From the FAQ:

      Can I still use my toilet after installing TiSP?
      Do we look stupid? Needless to say, the fiber optic cable that enables TiSP will not interfere with your toilet’s regular operations. For your own convenience, however, you may eventually wish to hire a professional contractor to help route the cable under, or through, the toilet seat to your TiSP wireless router.

      Rather interesting though! Those guys at Google, you never know what you’re going to get! Gmail was a mock april fool’s day prank and that ended up being real! Was it last year that they had the google fruit juice!?!

      Those guys are pretty creative at the Googleplex…

      No, this one is better; I logged into my gMail account this morning and discovered that GOOGLE is bringing back paper ! You can click the PRINT button to have THEM print out all your mails and they care about security so much, they will MAIL your documents to you by postal mail ! I don’t know how much longer they will keep up this page, so below is their post:

      http://mail.google.com/mail/help/paper/more.html

      New! Introducing Gmail Paper

      Everyone loves Gmail. But not everyone loves email, or the digital era. What ever happened to stamps, filing cabinets, and the mailman? Well, you asked for it, and its here. Were bringing it back.
      A New Button
      Now in Gmail, you can request a physical copy of any message with the click of a button, and we’ll send it to you in the mail.

      Simplicity Squared
      Google will print all messages instantly and prepare them for delivery. Allow 2-4 business days for a parcel to arrive via post.

      Total Control
      A stack of Gmail Paper arrives in a box at your doorstep, and its yours to keep forever. You can read it, sort it, search it, touch it. Or even move it to the trashthe real trash. (Recycling is encouraged.)

      Keep it Secret, Keep it Safe
      Google takes privacy very seriously. But once your email is physically in your hands, it’s as secure as you want to make it.

      Well, looks like the button’s not there…I was really wondering how far they would go with it (and what kind of ridiculous form you’d need to fill!)

      Now what about this…?

      It’s not a prank at all, it’s the new Gmail’s features:
      http://mail.google.com/mail/help/intl/en/about_whatsnew.html

      Do you see what I see? The intro clip on the right side was put into YouTube! Don’t you think it’s strange that Gmail wouldn’t use their own Google Videos to upload their own clips?? πŸ™‚

      Just a thought

      Yeah, but it is still weird that they wouldn’t use Google Video for it…Even though they own Youtube…
