    Gmail just got me good - the Gmail Motion Beta purports to use your webcam in the manner of a kinect, allowing you to navigate Gmail with gestures.

    I was sorta excited about it.

    http://zeboyd.com/2011/04/01/final-fantasy-xiii-remake-press-release/
    Zeboyd Games (Breath of Death VII: The Beginning, Cthulhu Saves the World) is proud to announce their upcoming RPG, the Final Fantasy XIII remake for the XBox Live Indie Games platform.

    “Although Final Fantasy XIII was one of the most highly respected games a year or two before its release, even the most diehard Final Fantasy fans today agree that it hasn’t aged well,” said Zeboyd Games founder, Robert Boyd. “We at Zeboyd Games are excited to be a part of the effort to bring this game up to modern standards of pacing, gameplay, story, and general non-suckiness.”

    “Sure, it will be difficult to get all the content in under 50MB limit, but thanks to our experience with the Crystal Stick Figure engine that Zeboyd Games pioneered in Molly the Were-Zompire, we feel up to the task.”

    “As the artist and level designer on the team,” says Bill Stiernberg (the artist and level designer on the team), “I can assure you that the graphics under the Stick Figure Engine will produce high quality, high def Stick Figure iterations of your favorite FFXIII characters. The game maps have been successfully ported as well, as there was very little lost in the translation to the straight and narrow aspects of the Stick Figure engine.”

    The Final Fantasy XIII remake will be released approximately 6 months after Zeboyd Games says it will. Suggested price is 80 MS points or $1 USD.

    1911 button isn't available on all videos.. if it's like the text one, the video has to be processed for the alternate version, so they only do popular ones first and then process ones people are actually viewing.

    A clever math teacher made an April Fool's presentation for his class:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aP4fWMLofvo

    Qualcomm does an April Fool's video every year. This year's isn't as funny as their Wolfpigeons/Sharkfalcons one, but I love the background scene in 1:15:

    I love some of the multiple choice answers. For example, for the Bill weapon:
    bill
    william
    billy
    willy
    will

    Also the Bohemian Ear Spoon, Bohemian Backscratcher, and Coast Guard Spork. I think I'll have to add the Coast Guard Spork to one of my fantasy RPGs someday.

    Apparently Gamestop is selling a game called Fightin Frogs today for low price of $9,000.01

    Someone at Gamestop has a horrible sense of humor.

    This was a 4chan (I want to say?) troll thing where they'd give a number to a gamestop/target/etc. and have people call them asking if they had Battletoads for 360 (or whatever current system.)

    It's pretty good.

    "It's over 9000!" is an internet meme that grew famous after Dragon Ball Z used it in an episode as some kind of "Holy crap he is powered up over the 9000th level" or something.

    I'm not positive on that, I'd google "over 9000" if I were you, I shoul dnot be truste.d

    This is the origin, here you go.

    Well not origin, but something like that.

    Quoting this from the CoD thread. Xbox Ahoy is an awesome dude who does comprehensive weapon guides, but he's taken a different turn here.
