Google greets April

I like to think that I'm too old to pull an April Fool joke on anyone. But I still enjoy a good joke. One can always depend on Google to liven up the day.

They were in good form last year with their Google Paper announcement.

I trawled my usual repertoire of Google's services yesterday, and only caught these two.



Where one usually finds the Orkut logo, there was a logo that read 'Yogurt written in the same style.

There was this gem on Blogger.



Did I miss any other funnies?

Update:
A joint venture with the Virgin Group, Virgle, to pioneer Open source Planetary exploration of Mars.
Custom time from Gmail.

Yet Another Update:
Why did I even bother when Wikipedia seems to have listed it all?
Ah well....

Gmail is offering "custom time" to back-date email, and google is accepting applications for open source planetary explorers of mars.

Ah! I saw the Google Custom Time feature last night and was thinking for almost an hour or so why any sane company would implement something as stupid as this. I just realized it today that it was an April Fool's joke.
