Google Tops April Fools Prank List

Modified Google Logo
Modified Google Logo
This year I think Google wins for Best April Fools Prank with TiSP (The Toilet Internet Service Protocol) They went all out promoting wireless Internet through household plumbing including an entire web site devoted to the hoax! Now, why canīt more companies take a lighter approach to life like this...

The modified Google logo and some of the "diagrams" are shown here. Iīve included a link to the main TiSP page - but Iīm not sure how long theyīll leave that active. What a lark!

I think my favorite quote is taken from the TiSP FAQ:

Why is TiSP in beta?
When things go wrong with TiSP, they go very, very wrong. Letīs leave it at that.
