Google April Fools 2006: Guesses?

Discussion in 'Google' started by Sholva, Mar 29, 2006.

    Who wants to speculate what prank they'll pull this year? Let's hope they haven't turned into big fat boring old company yet... like everyone else.

    I can remember off the top of my head the mentalplex, pigeon rank, lunar center, and of course the gulp. Let me know if I missed one? Because I think I did.

    Maybe it'll be some clever invention/gadget that indexes our houses, cars, lives, girlfriends/boyfriends etc for all the things we forget about (ie. lost keys, where things are in the fridge)

    Most likely way off, but give it a go and see who comes closest!

    With all I have going on, having to do, planning for, and etc.
    Now someone has to remind me of google!

    Okay, granddaughter got a car from her dad (he gets off cheap, since he divorced her mother when she was little).
    Hmmmm...guess who is the go-to guy if she has questions or troubles?
    Taking her Friday to the courthouse to get her tags, etc.
    Told her she is on her own for insurance....wait until her parents get the first bill for that one!

    My prediction: Google announces to take the company private by buying back all the available shares in the stock market at $100 per share.

    I guess they would come up with a shocker:

    Google gets acquired by Yahoo

    That'll be shocking!

    "Free" with a bunch of sponsored results on the side. :D

    Just like their search engine.

    If google, doesn't want their stock to completely crash, they need to expand VERY quickly into every online market imaginable.

    Hence Google Earth, Google Video, G-Mail, Adwords, Adsense, etc.

    The April fool's joke is that the founders and CEO only make a $1 a year working at Google.
