Google Wifi Balloons? Is it April Fools 2008 Already?
UPDATE: Looking for Google’s official April Fools joke for 2008? It’s here.
OK, let that sink in.
Yes, a company that attaches $1500 of wireless technology to $50 balloons, uses farmers to release them, watches them burst after 24 hours then, get this, little parachutes bring the transmitters safely back to earth!
Say it with me…”Are You Kidding Me?”
It sounds so absurd that I really don’t know where to start. Seriously, I’m lost for words. Is it April Fools already?
Go and read the WSJ piece then come back and let me know what you think about it.
