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 🙂
