Here's my problem with April Fools.
In recent years, it's not only getting harder to tell which pranks are jokes, but, increasingly, the jokes are REALLY GOOD IDEAS I WISH WERE TRUE. (See my earlier post on a Plastic Surgery Rewards Card)
Case in point.
Google's spoof this year involves an update for its email program called Gmail Motion.
Paul McDonald, Product Manager for Gmail, unveiled a video today which demonstrates a new way to read, write and send email. This new form of communicating does away with antiquated dinosaurs like keyboards and the computer mouse. Instead, a la the Microsoft Kinect, you can open email by motioning that you're opening a letter. From there, it gets pretty funny.
Watch the video.
