Google Loves April Fools Day

Today may be the most frustrating day of the year for someone like me who scans the web for mobile news to share with you. Several years back the practice of publishing prank posts on weblogs on April Fools Day became a meme, so the risk is reading something and believe that it is true, when in fact it is not true. Google seems to have great fun on April Fools Day. If you went to today you may have noticed the search engine has been renamed to Topeka. Google includes a link to an explanation, which is a tip of the hat to Topeka, Kansas, who changed its name to Google, Kansas in an effort to woo Google to select Topeka for the Fiber For Communities program.

So, what to make of Google Translate for Animals?
