First and foremost, Happy april fools day to everyone! Here in my country its already the second of April and I know in most countries its just the 1st so today I would be tackling something about April fools and the pranks from some websites/blogs.
Anyways its funny how a lot of people are just sooo gullible that you could really laugh out loud when you see them just get persuaded that easy. Whether they were really acting foolishly or just getting with the flow is up to them.
So for today I collected some of my fave april fools prank for the year 2010 and let me know what you think about them.
1. Google Changes Its Name to Topeka
It has been announced in Google’s blog and by reading the post alone, I could obviously tell that it’s an april fools prank. Nice try google though! I just couldn’t fathom why people would say “I did a topeka search for blah blah”.
2. TextP from Youtube
Lols, this new feature from youtube allows you to watch videos in text only mode. According to them, it would save them $1 per second of bandwidth. You can view any video in TextP format by appending &textp=fool to the end of any URL on YouTube. Lols..
3. An App for Android that will translate Animal Speech
Google UK is said to be offering an app that would easily translate Animal Speech. Funny concept but it’s an obvious prank I must say.
4. Shoemoney Modeling Agency
From the time I’ve seen the title of the post, I instantly knew it was shoe’s present for this year’s april fools. And watching the video would really make you laugh. It’s basically about shoemoney doing modeling for a hefty amount of price. And since shoe is baldy-wise, he again held comments that would spoil the post on moderation. I tried gaming the commenting system but to no avail.
5. DailyBlogTips Television Deal
Daniel Scocco tried to be unique this time but I still won’t bite his prank. 🙂 Interestingly a lot of people are FOOL enough to believe his claims. LOL. If blogging could land people TV shows then im sure this would only become more saturated than ever.
6. College Humor Banned by the Government
Going to the site, you would get redirected to this april fool page in which it would tell you that they logged your IP and may subpoena your address from your ISP for further investigation. Im sure it scared the hell out of those fools eh? 🙂
Techcrunch has a bigger list and you can go there if you’d like to see other april fools pranks.
April Fools Day Never Die
I don’t know but April fools never die even though it seems that most people are prepared for it. Even though, its still surprising how a lot people are foolish enough to bite the claim w/c made it more fun and enticing.
Post note: Me saying the word fool is not intended to offend people, its just going through the tradition. 😉
And there is my surprise announcement! 🙂 I’m completely removing my self from operations in this blog and other several website of mine. No not really, I will still own EVERYTHING but would appoint several key players to staff my network of sites especially this blog, MelvinBlog.com.
I’ve worked with myriads of talented within my 5 years and so it gave me the opportunity to really get them for the long haul. Does that mean i’m not gonna post in this blog anymore? probably yes (heck don’t be sad). Maybe I still would (3 times a year or whatever). But rest assured the people I’ve hired to continue run this blog is as competent as I am and I know they have better grammars than me, lols.
Don’t really want to dive a lot on the reason but its basically because I was hired as a soon-to-be IT Project Manager for a prestige company called IBM. It’s amazing because I am just going to graduate this May and to have that job is just life-changing for me. I mean I’m not even 20 and i’m getting this opportunity already. I know it would be a hard transition for me but I guess im just willing to take and I promise that I would do everything to get the money they would pay me worth it! Here’s the press that IBM issued regarding this.
Again no reason to be sad, I hope you as my readers would be happy for me and still continue to support this blog.
