April Fool Jokes Sms In Hindi In Urdu In English In Punjabi Marathi Pic Images Wallpaper In Urdu 2013 Poetry
According to Mark Twain, April 1 is the day that reminds us “what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four.” He means fools, not practical jokesters.

Google unveils a suite of pranks.
The search giant is known for its April Fools’ Day pranks, and this year it unleashed a number of them. Here are three examples:
• YouTube shutting down, selecting a “winner.” A slick video from Google explained that YouTube plans to stop accepting videos at midnight and will begin the process of selecting a winner. Pretty clever, actually:
• Google Nose enters beta. The first search engine that enables people to search for scents. “Smelling is believing,” the company proclaimed.
• Google Analytics spots Space Station control room. Anyone using their Google Analytics today likely spotted a new location pop up—the space station control room, which is somewhere in the South Pacific. (Full disclosure, I fell for this one and nearly sent a company-wide email about it.)
If you want to see even more Google pranks, Business Insider has a list.
In a blog post on Sunday, the 140-character social network said it’s breaking into a two-tiered platform: Twttr, a free service in which users can only tweet in consonants; and the original Twitter (or what it calls “premium”)—with consonants and vowels—that’ll cost users $5 a month.
By eliminating vowels, the company believes it will create more efficient and “dense” communications, according to the Twitter blog.
The blog post directs users to a site that translates regular tweets into twts; however, the site declares, “Happy April fool’s day,” or “Hppy prl fl's dy #nvwls.”

A Facebook page dedicated to the product has nearly 750,000 “likes,” and its Twitter feed has garnered more than 26,500 followers. Here’s a video for the Bacon Mouthwash the company shared via Twitter:

Sony's rolls out headphones for cats.
