April Foo(g)l(e)

Two days ago I logged into my GMail account. This innocuous page normally contains nothing of interest, but on this day it carried an announcement of a new product: Google Paper. Basically it's a service whereby you forward your emails to Google, they'll print them off for you and mail them to you.

I thought this was a bit bizarre, but I do know people who really really do not understand how email works: these things are printed off by their secretaries and arrive on their desk just the same way as any other document. I thought nothing more about it until I noticed that the login page had changed again, and it includes a link to their April Fool joke. Here it is

Enjoy!

Hello webdesigner dubai. I've been interested in dubai lately. I'm in college right now and I'm thinking of moving to dubai after getting a good (web design,graphic design, or job where I can use my art) http://Wgartwork.blogspot.com

Do web design jobs there pay good enough to live in a nice house?
Did you get the job before moving there?
