April Fools, Where’s Waldo

updated-waldo-blog-full-flow

It’s that time again!

April 1st usually marks the day when the Internet collectively let’s it’s hair down and has some fun by creating prank sites and products, to honor April Fool’s Day.

Google, wich has a reputation for not letting this day pass quietly (e.g Express Parachute Delivery), has brought the eponymous, lost hero of “Where’s Waldo”  to Google Maps.

To Find Waldo in Google Maps:

  1. Launch Maps, you’ll see Waldo waving at you.
  2. Tap Waldo then tap Play.

Enjoy,  be on the lookout for too good funny to be true offering from the likes of AirBNB, Amazon, and Subway.

Cheers!

April Fools 2016

Today many of your favorite sites are April Fool‘n around.

For example, take Gmail’s MicDrop feature. It promises to give you the last word on your outgoing message. 

MicDropI wish this feature did exist; it’d be a great way to silence those REPLY-TO-ALLers.

Update: Much like Orson Welles‘ radio broadcast of War of the Worlds this faux feature, was believed real. Citing a backlash of complaints, GMail quickly disabled this Aprils Fool’s joke

Past Tom Foolery has included Air BnB’s Bronze Era Rentals (pictured) complete with Trojan Horse, and Burger King’s left-handed sandwich wrapper.
