    I've always liked April Fools day because of media and companies that have a sense of humor.

    Google always does a number of things for April Fools Day.

    This year I noticed the following without searching for what they had done. List of Google's hoaxes and easter eggs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Quest mode in maps where everything was rendered as 8 bit NES RPG style to promote Google Maps for the NES. Google Maps

    Google Tap for Android introduces a "new" way to type email, morse code. https://mail.google.com/mail/help/promos/tap/index.html

    Google Racing introduces an autonomous race car to compete in NASCAR. Google Racing

    I still think my historic favorite is Taco Bell claiming to have bought the Liberty Bell. Taco Liberty Bell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Anyone know of some other good April Fools hoaxes from this year or earlier?

    I wish gmail tap was real. As a ham radio operator for the last 40 years, I could type fast using a "dot dash" user interface input.

    5.11 tactical announced their new tactical duty kilt today. Could be a Fool's Day prank.
