    Talking Google April Fools 07

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 1, 2007 - Google Inc.

The Toilet Internet Service Provider (TiSP) project is a self-installed, ad-supported online service that will be offered entirely free to any consumer with a WiFi-capable PC and a toilet connected to a local municipal sewage system.

    What a coincidence, I came to this forum just now to post that very same link

    Couldn't be anything else could it? Only slightly skewed thing is it was on slashdot today, not in yesterday's headlines.

    I think I liked Facebook's April 1 joke: Live InPerson "Pokes" When you clicked on the link it took you to your friend list.

    Moira, actually it isn't the first time that public service infrastructure has either been used or considered for something else.

    There has been talk on several occasions of supplying "mid band" through electricity supply cables?
