Gmail custom time

Its that time of the year again, April first, the fools day, when folks working at Google get creative and make a joke that is totally crazy and back it up with research that sounds authentic. This just proves that when you are passionate about something, you end up having tons of fun. This year they have created “google custom time” feature according to which your email can travel back in time and reach the receiver’s inbox before it was, all using e-flux capacitors and such like :)

Happy fools day :)

    I see Robin has already mentioned Virgle, but both of you missed the subtle Orkut joke – the logo was saying ‘yogurt’ instead of ‘orkut’ the whole day on the 1st. :)

    BTW, I thought this would sound interesting – Indian media is at it again: http://blog.dsignbeyond.com/2008/04/proof-courtesy-indian-television.html

    However the big ’31 Mar’ pic on the page gave away the joke this year. I understood that immediately
