Email the Past – Happy April 1 from Google

Google always delivers something fun on April 1st. This year is no exception
Check out Gmail Custom Time. Imagine being able to have a tool where you could email into the past… Now wouldn’t that be fun

Here is a brief excerpt:

“I just got two tickets to Radiohead by being the ‘first’ to respond to a co-worker’s ‘first-come, first-serve’ email. Someone else had already won them, but I told everyone to check their inboxes again. Everyone sort of knows I used Custom Time on this one, but I’m denying it.”

They are even good at humor.

Gmail: Google’s approach to email

Oh yeah, on another note – a non-fictitious one. Google Docs is going to work with Google Gears now. Huh? That means that you can pull your documents from the online editor in Google down onto your desktop, without the need for additional programs such as MS Office. Pretty sweet. It is being rolled out slowly, and I have not seen it yet. I will update once I get to try it out.
