anyone catch the new program on the google home search page? 

http://www.google.com/

program is called CADIE
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

It's a great April Fool - I've been laughing at it all day long - especially the email where the program automatically tells all of your personal info to the person in Nigeria who wants you to allow them to use your bank account for the 25 million dollar deposit  :-D :-D :-D :-D

I had my classes at school checking into artificial intelligence engines, discussing Asimov's I, Robot and generally flipping out over this site! When they found out it was an April's Fool joke, I got a bunch of emails (at home) "fussing" at me for playing the joke! What a great day!! I got to sneak a little learning in while they were off-guard....

It is what it is.......except when it isn't.
