Google ditches Inbox

Following the successful adoption of the new GmailGoogle has announced it will discontinue the not so great experiment, Inbox, by March of 2019.

The announcement marks a decision to reinvest their R&D efforts back into the existing platform.

Good riddance (of course I said the same thing to my CompuServe and AOL accounts, way back when)

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.
