It’s that time of year again, April Fools Day. A day to relax but also be somewhat skeptical about what you see on the internet.
Google is the king of April Fools Day because they do the most jokes/pranks out of all the companies who participate. In case you didn’t know already but Gmail actually launched on April 1st 2004, not as a joke but as an actual service from Google.
Here is a look at the April Fools Jokes by tech companies and sites.
Amazon Dash Button (Update: They’re real and not a joke)
The Amazon Dash button is a small Wi-Fi connected button that can stick to anywhere in your house. Essentially it works just like the 1-click button on Amazon’s site but it’s in real life.
Update (7.29.2015): Amazon has finally released their Dash Buttons and they cost $4.99 each if you are a Prime member. If I was Amazon, if wouldn’t have announced these so close to April Fools Day unless they were actually a joke, which most people thought they were.
