April Fool's
Interestingly, Google launched a lot of their real services on April 1st too (including Gmail), possibly just to keep people guessing.

Personally, it sounds a lot more realistic than their usual jokes - pigeons, moon bases and mind-altering beverages, oh my.

Edit:

I would like to revise my earlier estimate.

Well we have a compost toilet. You'd need a lot more than a snorkel and flippers to install that thing here, I can tell you.

I think this is really wonderful.

I saw this just a moment ago and completely forgot it was April 1, so I was all "...what the hell?" :P

Yep... At the very least, such an internet's bound to be better than DSL. 'Specially if the rumors I heard about them jacking up costs to cover their own stupidity come to reality.

My favorite is still the MentalPlex. TiSP is moderately humorous, but the new Gmail Paper is great. It even has a LotR reference!
