  1. Sickr, tbh first time I clicked on this link, I was led to a spew of porn sites o_O But then the second time it led me here, as well as the third time to post this.

      1. It’s nothing to do with me! I’ve contacted support and hopefully they can get this resolved. Don’t think it’s happening to everyone but it obviously needs sorting. Sorry guys!

      2. Me as well about 4 times, I’m glad that I’m not the only one. I thought that there’s something wrong with my iPhone.

      1. It’s not April yet in the UK either, which sits in the time zone by which all other time zones are measured. Google is a primarily western company, and the UK and USA are the two prime western territories so it would make sense to time the release for one or the other.

    1. It went up just as it became April 1st in New Zealand (leading time zone in the world). And while I’m at it, it’s April 1st where I am.

  2. Awesome, I just looked at it, it’s really up :) I wanted to see 8-bit Disney World but they didn’t do it. Oh well, still cool though.

    1. They’re actually making it (if past Google April Fools jokes are to go by). The last couple times they did the jokes they actually sold them, and people said they were pretty great quality.

  3. Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back
    frequently!

  4. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m
    looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  5. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with
    your blog. It appears like some of the written
    text on your posts are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please provide feedback
    and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my
    internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Thanks

  6. Hello just stumbled upon your blog from Google after I typed in, “April Fools! Google Creates Google Maps For The NES | My Nintendo News” or perhaps something similar (can’t quite remember exactly). Anyhow, I’m pleased I found it because your
    content is exactly what I’m searching for (writing a college paper) and I hope you don’t mind
    if I gather some material from here and I will of course credit you as the reference.
    Many thanks.

  7. Thanks for a marvelous posting! I definitely enjoyed
    reading it, you will be a great author.I will make certain to bookmark your blog and may
    come back in the foreseeable future. I want to encourage you to continue your great writing, have a nice holiday weekend!

  8. Nice post. I was checking continuously this blog and I’m impressed! Very useful info specifically the last part :) I care for such information much. I was looking for this particular information for a very long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  9. Oh my goodness! Awesome article dude! Thank you so much, However I am having
    difficulties with your RSS. I don’t understand the reason why I can’t
    subscribe to it. Is there anybody having similar RSS problems?

    Anyone that knows the answer can you kindly respond? Thanks!
    !

  10. Other important benefits of a dedicated server include speedy delivery of
    web pages, flexibility of upgrading software and adding patches among others.
    The space and bandwidth they offer are ideal for any personal site or starting business.
    Very simple, and a very effective way to earn
    money online.

  11. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to
    get the hang of it!

  12. We’re a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our
    community. Your web site provided us with useful information to work
    on. You have done an impressive activity and our entire group shall be thankful to you.
