Cuz, like, I'm sure it's a joke, right? Right? I mean, it's April the Uno. Foolishness time.No Doc your not, hence why my jaw is now on the floor. Doc points to the real Google April fools joke, which I caught as well via some other site.
But I just got a call from somebody on The Inside at Google.GoogleInsider> Doc?So, am I the only one who thought this was a joke?
GoogleInsider> It's not a joke.
DocSearls> You're kidding.
GoogleInsider> No. It's not a joke.
