April Fool's Day

I notice Google have been up to their usual April Fool shenanigans. Techcrunch have also started a post here about what some other companies have been doing (they'll be updating this throughout the day).
Anybody come across any other entertaining April Fool's snippets?
Can any of you old-timers remember this one from a few year's back?
