April Fools 2009, Google-style

Did you see it? Yes, today is April Fool's, and Google attempted to pull the wool over everyone's eyes (see CNET's story on it here). The problem is they overreached. Really, an email system that automatically reads and responds for you? Artificial intelligence built into the world's search engine? A bit far-reaching, especially since we can't even control all the hacking that's prevalent in our current computing environment.
What's even more interesting is that Google also had some info today about what Gmail will bring in terms of advancements in the next five years. One has to wonder if that was just another April Fools.
