Gets me every time

Google is the master at a lot of things. If I didn’t have google, I don’t know where I’d be. :) I use it for blogging, photos (I heart Picassa), e-mail (take THAT hotmail!), I would use it for calendaring if it weren’t for my job that forces me to use Outlook, and of course the search engine that started it all.

Every time I turn around google is releasing some cool new feature or program that I can’t wait to use. I’ve come to expect great things from them, and the constant improvements seem to have no end in sight. But, today I’d like to recognize the google genius behind April Fools day.

Last year when I logged into my gmail I saw the “new! Gmail paper” link and of course wanted to know what cool new thing they had come up with. Here is the outline of what it is. I read it, and re-read it. And then couldn’t figure out why anyone in their right mind would want e-mails printed. Then looked at my calendar and could NOT stop laughing. I seriously thought they had instituted this program and couldn’t figure out why!

This year, I logged into gmail, and saw the “New Gmail custom time” link and of course clicked it. My exact words were “how cool is that?!?!” and then I was trying to figure out how gmail took over the world, and somehow wrote something that would overpower every single computer’s date/time stamping abilities. Then I looked at my calendar and laughed at myself. Geez, I’m a dork sometimes!
So, google geniuses, rest assured that you get me every year. I can't wait to see what you come up with next year!

  1. LOL. It gets me every time too. Wouldn't that be nice sometimes to be able to back date your emails and mark them as read already? :)
