Enterprise Applications: Google Morphs into Topeka, One of Many April Fools' Day 2010 Gags
More than any other Internet company, Google has a blast with April 1, also known as April Fools' Day. The search engine has turned the faux holiday into high art, ripping off blog posts and new Web pages for almost every segment of its business from search to YouTube to Google Docs and other sites. Google may have shattered its own record for gags in 2010, with such winners as changing its name to Topeka and Google Jail for Communities. Google won't be mistaken for The Onion anytime soon, but you may get a chuckle or two from some of these goofs, which include human notifiers for Google Wave and Google Translate for Animals.
