The Web's Best April Fools' Jokes

By Matthew Lynley

Stick a bunch of smart engineers in a room to build a product and you're bound to get a few funny ideas.

April Fool's is typically the time when tech-heavy companies decide to unleash those ideas -- for better or worse -- onto the Web.

Below are a few of the best from the Web. Find any others? Let us know about them in the comments.

Bing is Google? -- We're feeling confused. Go to the Bing homepage and search "Google." You'll see what we mean in a second.

Twttr fnd wys t gt mny -- Twitter said it was "shifting" to a two-tiered service, in which it would charge users $5 a month for a premium service to use both consonants and vowels in tweets. The free version won't include vowels:

Hand-written results from Wolfram Alpha -- The math-juiced search engine now promises its results will come hand-written.

Treasure hunting -- Like last year, Google has a special mod for Google Maps today, turning it into a giant treasure map like the ones you would see in pirate movies. Swapping to street view is the equivalent of looking through a spyglass. Give it a whirl.

YouTube shutting down -- Apparently YouTube as we know it was an eight year-long contest to find the greatest video on the Internet. Having received enough "submissions," YouTube will "shut down" tonight as judges determine which was the best video on the Internet. This one actually fooled quite a bit of people on Twitter.

Google Nose -- "Sometimes, they're not looking at all." There's a new "service" from Google that will let users "search" for smells.

Nokia reinvents the microwave -- The Finnish company isn't stopping with mobile phones to jump-start itself. Its newest product is a touch-screen microwave oven that, like its phones, appears to be based on Microsoft's Windows software.

A 3-D printer for kids -- We wish these products were real. ThinkGeek is offering fun products for the whole family, including a Play-Doh 3-D Printer, and for "Lord of the Rings" fans, an Eye of Sauron Desk Lamp, complete with a "roving eye that will watch you while you work."

Upload Imgur images by snail mail -- Instead of directly uploading a photo through the Web to image hosting site Imgur, you can now "mail" it to the site.

Plex takes the cake by releasing a server update that Rickrolls people when they resume a video from the home screen of the Plex media center:
