Heya guys!
Just posting a little thread explaining a little prank google have done ^.^

Google posted a video today saying how they're hiring "pokemon masters". The way to do this is to download the new google maps (Updated today), click the search button and there will be a pokeball which will say "Click Start".

Now, you're thinking this may just be a usual april fools hoax, right? Nope! Google have actually put 150 pokemon onto the google maps map, where you will be able to find and catch them all! This part is actually not an april fools joke, actually try it.

Unfortunately, this update only works for those with a phone, either iphone or android, so for those of you with a computer, sorry...

Anyway, here's the promotional video they posted with the prank:

Google's actual April Fool's Day prank is announcing that they're rolling out their robotic army of minions to lay siege to Microsoft and Apple HQ and eventually take over the world. Except it's not an April Fool's Day prank because Google have been buying out robotics companies across the US for the past year or so. I, for one, welcome our new Google overlords.

I like how when the guy was mentioning when your job would start on September 1st 2014, otherwise known as Labor Day. xD

Though out of the entire video, I found this to be the most amusing part.

I actually visited their site and this came up. Zipped Lips

That was a beast video. Too bad I wasn't paying attention to what was going on earlier so I could have signed up. Sad

I had heard something about this, but didn't really look into it much. I'm not a huge fan of Google, but I have to say, some of the stuff they pull off is really cool!
