Google TiSP. I almost fell for it until I read that part about the toilet bowl. And the wacky FAQ. And the Error 404.

Heh.

      Ok, so I’m really bad at statuses. For April Fools’ Day, I’m going to post a link to Google’s Mentalplex joke. What would be a good captionish thing for the link? I don’t want to reveal that its a joke until they open the link…

      Call me an idiot, but was the whole “Google’s changing their name to Topeka” thing an April Fool’s joke? Some say it was but some it wasn’t. Confused??

      Did the google phone come to Verizon Wireless? Is it the HTC DROID ERIS and/or the MOTOROLA DROID? Are there several versions for the google phone? Is the google phone different for each cellphone network? How much is it? I heard that is was coming to Verizon Wireless in the spring but I am not sure. If you know anything, please answer. I really want to know when the google phone is coming to Verizon Wireless and if it came out already.

      I read that the people at Google can use a part of their working time not for their normal work but to be creative and to invent new ideas during that time. How does the leadership of Google then gets to know this ideas?
      Do the people put these ideas into the intranet, where it can be judged by the colleagues. Or is their a committee of some people, which collects the ideas and evaluates them. Or is it quite different?

      Who’s heard of the new drink by google? Who’s tried it? What’s different about it. Don’t send me a link to google’s gulp page. I could find that information on my own if I had to!
