FutureMe: This Email From The Grave Doesn’t Seem So Haunting!

With Domino’s App, Pizza is Now Zero Click Away
Hungry? But too lazy to order something? Well, the latest Domino’s app can get you a pizza without a single click or swipe.

Looks like Gmail Mic Drop feature was a Misadventure
Like all the April Fools’ Day pranks, some are received as funny ones while others do not go as planned. Even when pranksters do it with well-intentions, some of the pranks push it a little too far and as a result, recipients are saddened.
