I gotta admit it: I completely bought Robert’s story about Apple collaborating with Google and Amazon on a new “iReader”.
I mean, I bought it BIG TIME. I read the first few paragraphs and then stopped so I could excitedly tell the rest of the guys in the band, who happened to be at my apartment for songwriting sessions. I started reading it to them, telling them all the features and whatnot, and then got to the end of the story where it was revealed that it’s all an April Fools Day prank and felt completely foolish for allowing myself to be suckered like that. Again.
Bravo, Robert. Bravo. You got me to whole-heartedly buy into the post.
By the way, Robert: I’ll be in San Francisco for the first time in ten years next weekend. What’s fun to do around town?
I didn’t fall for Gmail Paper, but it’s pretty funny nonetheless.
