Google's gag gets me (briefly)

Living up to its reputation for arresting April Fools hoaxes, Google unleashed a basket of bogus goodies for gullible netizens this morning. I fell for the "Custom Time" feature, which purported to allow Gmail users to manipulate the time an email appeared to have been sent (never be late with an email again!) The feature sounds almost plausible, until one reads further on the Custom Time info site, and the satire becomes clear. Visit Wikipedia for an exhaustive list of Mountain View pranks.
