Bill Gates can be Funny Shock

For this year’s CES Bill Gates and some other slightly less famous folks* put together a faux “Bill Gates’ Last Day at Microsoft” video. What’s amazing about this is that Bill Gates actually comes across as pretty funny, and I have to admit that I never thought I’d enjoy a Microsoft video direct from source – but it’s good to be proved wrong. Nice job, Bill!

* Some of those less famous folks; Matthew McConaughey, Bono, Jay Z, Al Gore, Hilary Clinton, George Clooney, Steven Spielberg and Jon Stewart. I guess it’s great to have celeb friends and a few billion dollars spare.

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Yep, April Fools Day. A day filled with joy, laughter, bad jokes and Google’s new releases.

This year Google have developed at least two new services to celebrate the festivities; first up from the Google home page you can apply for their new TiSP internet service, a revolutionary service that routes inexpensive broadband to you directly through the sewer system. The genius of this idea is that every house in America, if not the world, already has an access point… your toilet.

Next up we have Google Paper. Found on the home page of Google Mail, this service offers you a free way to get paper backups of all your Gmail. Amazing! But how does Google offer this free, including printing and delivery? Simple. Adverts. Each piece of paper you receive will have a large advert printed on the back. Whatever will they think of next…
