April Fool’s Day highlights

Amazon says it’s taking “cloud” computing to new heights, as it were.

Derivative funds and large government-subsidized entities will be especially interested in FACE’s transmodal operation. They can allocate a dedicated FACE, load it up with data, and then send it out to sea to perform advanced processing in safety. The government will have absolutely no chance of acting against them, because they will be too busy trying to decide which Federal Air Regulation (FAR) was violated, not to mention scheduling news conferences.

First excellent April Fool’s joke I saw this year was from The Guardian.  The best so far is from Expedia.  Others are linked in my Twitter feed.  And personally, I’m encouraging the concept of April No-Fooling Day.
