I went on to Google Maps to see they're advertising a new 8-bit version, available soon for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Fans of the early "Dragon Quest" (Dragon Warrior here in the US) games will recognize the visuals and music.

The overlay for real Google Maps is also available.

I especially like the "street view" in this version. Once again, the G does nice work on April 1st.

And now Google proper has weighed in with their big new thing: Google Racing, self-driving cars. They even got NASCAR to host a video about it. Any other April Fools news out there?

Lots: Click Here!

The top list is "featured" by which I assume they mean "sponsored", the next list is "Top 20", and then there's the "all" list.

They've also got lists from every year back to 2004.

Enjoy.

AmericanMuscle.com (a Mustang aftermarket site) announced JapaneseMuscle.com so you can rice out your car. Even posted a video that I didn't watch.

George Takei announced the movie Excelsior about the ship and his crew with "Agha", Kahn's grandson (which was a huge giveaway it was a joke) as the villian, Gilbert Gottfried as a Frengi First Officer, and Lisa Lampanelli as a Bajoran security officer, all done by Abrams and Orci.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

Mr. Boffo, you missed YouTube's own gag:

Own the YouTube Collection (youtube.com) (500K+ DVDs, only $2.5 million!)

(edited by Texas Kelly on 1.4.12 1517)

(Holds; June 18, 2006)
While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

I was looking for something on youtube but didn't see anything. Nothing on hulu as far as I could tell. As usual, ThinkGeek has a bunch of fake products for sale. They've already decided to make the Inflatable Captain's Chair available for real. Other products listed include Keurig Meals, Minecraft Marshmallow Creeps, the Admiral Ackbar Singing Bass, the Technomancer Electronic Wizard Hoodie, the Skyrim Electronic Dragon Shout Hoodie, Game of Thrones Fire and Blood Perfume, Barbie Digital Fashion iPad Head, and Electric Hungry Hungry Hippos for the iPod. Someone in one of the facebook comments also notes that something special happens when you input the Konami code.

I enjoyed http://www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=qEMG3uhZB_​M this videogame advertisement released today. The Kinect clearly needs games like that!

I also can't format posts, apparently. :(

During today's NASCAR race, Carl Edwards said his transmission broke. After a panicked crew chief (and commentating team) talked about it for a few seconds, Carl said APRIL FOOLS or something like that. Quite fun!

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
