I give this a 2 out of 5. It’s not massively funny and is more likely to scare the gullible among us more than it will amuse.
I don’t know where this story orginated by I found it on Mashable

This story gets 3 out of 5, for similar reasons to the one above. This gets an extra point for at least mocking up some examples.
Oh, it originated on the Twitter blog.
This apparently comes from the official Gmail blog, which is hosted by Blogspot. Does Google own that?
Anyway, I feel this is probably only part of what Google have been up to for April Fools. As I mentioned in an earlier post, it’s a big part of the culture at Google. My Gmail hasn’t gone blue, but then I hardly use it. It’s a nice design change I guess, so this gets a 3 out of 5 too.
