Saturday Short Subjects: Gmail Tap

I wasn’t planning to post today, but I can’t wait to share this new app with you. Introduced a week ago, I just learned of it last night. If you use Gmail on your phone, this product will rock your world.

The app’s release date was April 1. If you haven’t guessed it by now, this is one of Google’s 2012 April Fool’s Day pranks. There are lots more, including Google Maps in 8-bit designed for the NIntendo, Google Really Advanced Search, and Google’s partnership with NASCAR. You can check out all 16 pranks and their links here. Tap is my favorite.

Have fun, and have a great weekend.

Why Saturday Short Subjects? Some readers may recall  being dropped at the movie theater for the Saturday matinee — two action-packed feature films with a series of short subjects (cartoons or short movies, sometimes a serial cliffhanger) sandwiched in between. Often the short subjects were the most memorable, and enjoyable, part of the morning. That explains the name. The reason behind these particular posts is that we are all short on time. My Short Subject posts should not take me as long to write or you as long to read (or try).
