April Fools’ Day 2013 roundup

I love surfing the internet on April Fools’ Day. It’s a day when companies and website stop business as usual and post something funny. This year’s April Fools’ Day was pretty fun. Google did lots of jokes as usual. I love the Google Treasure Maps. ThinkGeek also came up with a bunch of funny products. I wish they really make the Eye of Sauron Desk Lamp. Damn cool. iFixit did a great Orange Teardown. My personal favorite is Mashable Troll Appreciation Day.

I can’t compile all the April Fools’ jokes into one post. There are just too many of them out there. So here are some of the good ones. Do let me know which is your favorite.
