Care to explain please...

can't remember the exact details so just gonna copy and paste from the wiki page (Google's hoaxes, en.wikipedia.org/wik…xes)


Google TiSP (short for Toilet Internet Service Provider) was a fictitious free broadband service supposedly released by Google. This service would make use of a standard toilet and sewage lines to provide free Internet connectivity at a speed of 8 Mbit/s (2 Mbit/s upload) (or up to 32 Mbit/s with a paid plan). The user would drop a weighted end of a long, Google-supplied fiber-optic cable in their toilet and flush it. Around 60 minutes later, the end would be recovered and connected to the Internet by a "Plumbing Hardware Dispatcher (PHD)". The user would then connect their end to a Google-supplied wireless router and run the Google-supplied installation media on a Windows XP or Vista computer ("Mac and Linux support coming soon"). Alternatively, a user could request a professional installation, in which Google would deploy nanobots through the plumbing to complete the process. The free service would be supported by "discreet DNA sequencing" of "personal bodily output" to display online ads that relate to culinary preferences and personal health. Google also referenced the cola-and-Mentos reaction in their FAQ: "If you're still experiencing problems, drop eight mints into the bowl and add a two-liter bottle of diet soda." Also, look for delivery offered through the sewage system!

I thought it was a pretty weak April Fools this year
- the BBC's fake documentary piece was unfunny and rather pointless - I was expecting Steven Fry to ride one of those Shark/Whales!
- usually a load of decent video game fool's, but hardly none this year.
- youtube's upside down gag was poor - the rick'roll from last year was much better.
- google - meh...and predictable
