April Fools!

Google and Topeka

  • What does Kansas have to offer, besides Obama’s mama?   Well as of this week, Topeka, Kansas can proudly say that it was the punch line of an international April Fool’s joke. The notorious corporate April fool’s enthusiast, Google, kept their reputation alive this week by renaming itself Topeka, in honor of Kansas’ capital.

If Apple Had a Sense of Humor…

  • The Register reported on Thursday, Apple’s intentions to remove HTML support from their most popular devices, the iPhone, iPod and long sought after iPad. The traditional programming codex will be replaced by Apple’s very own iHTML. Analysts speculate that Apple will charge a license fee of ten cents per page for sites seeking to convert to iHTML. With an estimated one trillion pages floating out there in cyberspace, Apple can anticipate profits exceeding 100 billion dollars. That being said, Apple has implemented a metatag identification string detection platform that signals whether the page is “Approved by Apple.” [Note: This is a joke.]

iPad Apps Have Arrived

Apple has started adding iPad apps to their iTunes store. Although the iPad hasn’t yet hit the market, Apple fanatics can pre-purchase applications, which will be stored on their computer until the iPad is connected.

YouTube Updates


YouTube to Shut down Text-Advertising

  • AdAge reported this week that YouTube will shut down its text-advertising network on April 30, 2010 and surrender its market share to Google to focus on premium display advertisement.

About Camille Canon

Outside of summer jobs and not-for-profit internships, The Search Agency is my first official place of employment. I recently graduated from Mount Holyoke College, where I studied Art History and German. I am an avid cook, baker, and destroyer of diets. My specialties are cream cheese brownies, biscotti cookies and lemon bars. I am also an Art enthusiast. Living in Berlin enables me to follow a young, emerging Art scene complete with “eccentric” performance pieces and temporarily converted butcher shop galleries. I also enjoy running, traveling, and handy work. Camille Canon +
