Tech Companies on April Fool's Day


It's April Fools 2011 and many companies have decided to offer some odd news and pranks.

Toshiba promises to enhance your entertainment with the world's first 3D monocle. Dubbed "Spectacle" the device offers one-eyed 3D that is so real, "you?d think you were using both eyes!"



Google announced the Gmail Motion and the Docs Motion, which offer "intuitive, ergonomic" gesture control to replace your outdated keyboard-and-mouse combo.

Google continued its April Fools celebration with this job posting for an "autocompleter". "Every day people start typing more than a billion searches on Google and expect Google to predict what they are looking for. In order to do this at scale, we need your help - As a Google Autocompleter, you'll be expected to successfully guess a user's intention as he or she starts typing instantly. In a fraction of a second, you'll need to type in your prediction that will be added to the list of suggestions given by Google. Don't worry, after a few million predictions you'll grow the required reflexes."

Google Friendship, the company's big push into social networking also unveiled today. According to the landing page, Google Friendship allows users to discover the new Social Network, Share updates, photos, videos, and more, and Start conversations about the things you find interesting.

Youtube announced a Web video service is revisiting some of its top viral moments - starting from from 1911!

Hulu also changed its web site design adding a retro - and frightening - look. Imagine the streaming video service if it had launched in 1996.
