How was April Fools Day?

I didn't know it was April Fool's day yesterday untill my online Vendor pulled a prank on me. As usual, I was checking emails late in the evening, one mail with rock-solid steal-deal was almost irresistible.


It was about LisN-C Bluetooth/Video All-in-One Micro Spy Device. This could capture Video/Image in 10 MegaPixel,full motion video @ 800x600 at 30FPS, night vision mode, 128 GP USB flash drive, 6 cell battery for extended operation, Bluetooth transmission with distance hearing amplifier w/100 foot range, Voice to Text Technology plus auto Twitter,Micro-Video Projector and more...

They flaunted it's only $49.99 for first $500 orders and I knew they have more than 5,000 readers watching the same Ad. Trying to jump on the race, I clicked their Newsletter link and GOSH..
This is the page where I ended up.

April Fool.. phew.. I almost took my Credit Card out, and was about to get this too-good-to-be-true stuff. I was imagining this thing if existed could've cost at minimum for more than 1,000 bucks but alas, it's just somebody's fantasy at work played on April's 1st. I made that Mr. Bean's Pissed off face once I realised it's not real and moment later, I burst out with laugh.

Later I found World played a big prank to everybody on this particular day. There are so naive bloggers out there that they actually thought it's real and wrote post about them thinking it's true. Sorry for them.

So, the followings are the April Fool's day list(assorted) which I think should be mentioned on my blog:

1. Gmail's new Auto-response feature


2. Google gBall with built-in GPS module and motion sensor


3. Warner Bros bought ThePirateBay.com. If you've read my blogpost previously where I wrote about the Pirate Bay folks being dragged into the court for illegal file sharing.


4. KegWorks Beer Powder. Yeap, just pour beer powder into a glass, add some water and see water turns into beer. Forget about that shitty "drink beer,save water" nonsense.


5. Internet Rebooting itself.


6. Internet Explorer v.8.1 code named Eagle Eyes leaked.


7. And, of course the Conficker Worm's Global Attack on world-wide computing. Many news media sensationalized this Internet Worm Issue more than anything which was unnecessary. Nothing happened. Just an April Fool's prank. I've played hide-n-seek with this Conficker Worm in my Sandbox, if you want to get over of this worm, read my previous post on "How to Remove Conficker Worm".




Thank you for reading my post.

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
