April 1 roundup

Oddly enough, discussion online still can't quite figure out whether GMail (from Google) is real or fake... It's a really neat marketing idea if it's real! The press release is worded to make it very ambiguous, imho. (Using the word "kvetching" helps that illusion a lot ;-)

Did I miss any? I'm sure I did.

Edit: Oh yeah, the Batmobile pictures at the Batman Begins website seem to be real, too. But still funny-lookin', IMHO.
Edit 2: 5.25" bay EZ-Bake Oven and HabiCase at ThinkGeek. More good stuff on the front page.
Edit 3: Join the March for Web Standards at the National Mall, happening even as we speak!

From what I have read, GMail is supposedly real, but hte lunar jobs are not :)

AFAICT, Gmail is like hotmail or yahoo mail, only with cooler features and way more storage. But I'm not sure.

That is what NPR was reporting last night. Google-like searching over your mail, and ads targeted to you based on the content of your email.

I have a G5 powerbook!
Isn't it cool looking? For those who may not remember that particular flash in the pan, it's an eMate, a Newton with a stylish and @i resilient clamshell case and keyboard, that Apple sold into the Education market in .... 1996 or 97. It was one of the last Newtons released before Steve killed the Newton. I'd love to see a Mac in that form factor (but without the big handle behind the screen, which you can't really see in the photo).
