Today is April 1st, and that means there will be lots of pranks floating around online today. This is one of the more irritating days to be a gadget writer, some of the pranks are obvious, but at times they can be subtle and you end up writing about something that is fake that you think is real.

Man those Big Mouth Billy Bass things are annoying. Who buys this stuff? You know who you are, and one day you will need to answer for your crimes of purchase. This Star Wars Admiral Ackbar Singing Bass on the other hand is pretty awesome.
Google brought back the groundbreaking, anti-Retina display 8-bit technology to their Maps service. But that’s not all that the company has in store for us. Introducing Gmail Tap.

While we’re reasonably certain that the pranksters at Google have jumped the gun with one of their big April Fools pranks, we’re still the slightest bit hopeful that Google Maps for the Nintendo Entertainment System is a real thing.
Any time a week before and a week after April Fools’ Day, when I see something cool that looks like it is too good to be true I always get cautious.
