Just because yesterday was April Fool’s Day doesn’t mean you had any less work to do. In fact, maybe you were so busy that you jumped at the chance to enlist Gmail’s help in responding to the numerous e-mails you receive every day. With the newly released Autopilot, Gmail takes its service one step further. Now, Google’s Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed Intelligence Entity—otherwise known as CADIE—will assess the tone of the e-mails you receive and respond to them for you.
With the time you save by letting CADIE respond to your e-mails, you’ll have plenty of time to download music. The owners of the BitTorrent site The Pirate Bay have made it easier for you, too, by selling their site to Warner Bros.
When they faced their last round of legal charges in Sweden this February, they argued that even if they got sued, they wouldn’t have money to pay the damages. Now they’ve got the cash (around $13 billion) and Warner Bros. can deal with the legal complications.
You’ll also save time now that The Guardian plans to eliminate its print version and switch entirely to the Twitter platform. After all, you knew perfectly well that any story worth telling could be expressed in 140 characters or less. Thank goodness that dinosaur newspaper finally caught on after 188 years!
So you’ve streamlined your day. It’s time to sit back, relax and have a good hearty laugh over all the April Fools’ Day jokes that exploded on the Web. Because as it turns out, no matter what is bothering you or causing you stress, laughter is the best medicine. No…really! It’s not a joke!
