April Fools day is a big deal for tech companies. Google have turned the annual day of japery and tomfoolerly into an art form — last year announcing Gmail’s autoreply feature which analysed the way you replied to your emails and could reply automatically for you.
It caused a minor storm and lovably gullible people the world over fell for it. Though this year Google may well have been trumped by Californian chipset doyens Qualcomm.
According to a press conference video posted last night there has been a string of savage butterfly attacks attacks caused by Qualcomm’s latest mirasol screen device which was stolen from their labs.
Best tech April Fool this year? You decide.
