Google announces 8-bit maps, morse-code Gmail for April Fools

This is the Google I love. For April Fool's day, Google announced they were porting their Maps service to... the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Not to be outdone, the Gmail team also announced support for morse code with Gmail Tap.

The Maps team:

In our pursuit of new digital frontiers, we realized that we may have left behind a large number of users who couldn't access Google Maps on their classic hardware. Surprisingly, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was unsupported, despite its tremendous popularity with over 60 million units sold worldwide.

Google's new privacy policy and of "don't be don't be evil"

Probably like many of you, I received my new Google Privacy Policy via email this week, and while couched in language about creating a more "beautiful" experience for us, the users -- read: products -- it's also clearly about Google leveraging their popular services like Search and Gmail to help their new services, like Google+, become competitive with Facebook and Twitter.

Sent app is a more native Gmail client for iPhone, but...

Sent is a Gmail client for iPhone that's decidedly more native than Google's own, still disappointing Gmail app. It also offers multiple account support. But before you get too excited it's $4.99 and doesn't offer push notifications (yet?). It also asks you to login to your Google account right inside the app, rather than sending you to Google's web page for authorization. Maybe that doesn't work for 3rd party clients, but it does work for my security paranoid brain that flinches at the thought of putting my creds into 3rd party app. The internet birthed Xauth for a reason, after all.

Whether you like the idea of a separate app for Gmail or not -- and I personally don't -- it would be nice to see Google take some of their search billions -- nicely fed by iOS devices, thank you! -- and make the first party app a lot of people are still waiting for.

$4.99 - App Store link

Poll: Which email services are you using on your iPhone?

Poll: Which email services are you using on your iPhone?

So which email services are you using on your iPhone? Apple gives away iCloud's me.com addresses for free now, geeks love their Gmail (though not the app!), Yahoo! mail is still going strong, even if Yahoo! isn't, and Microsoft recently said 2 million iOS 5 users were using Hotmail, and growing at the rate of 100k a day now that it's easier to setup (go figure!). Then there's corporate Exchange, your ISP's email, home-spun servers, and all sorts of other stuff.
