The 404 1,023: Where we go one step beyond (podcast)

Leaked from today's episode of The 404: Ashton Kutcher signed on to play Steve Jobs in biopic (not a joke), April Fools' tech pranks, and self-driving cars aren't as far away as we thought!


Tumblr

Out of all the silly headlines that squirmed into my Google Reader feed yesterday, "Ashton Kutcher signed on to play Steve Jobs in upcoming biopic" stood out as the most obvious April Fools' prank, but the joke's on us when we find out today that it's true -- the star of such films as "The Butterfly Effect" and "What Happens in Vegas" will portray the Apple luminary in an indie film simply called "Jobs."

It's true that the Internet killed the April Fools' Day pranks, but we're obligated by the rules of the Web to spend at least a few minutes talking about our favorites -- get ready for Google Racing, Chrome Multitasking, Kodak LivePrint Kitten, and the YouTube compendium.

Join us after the break for Calls From the Public as well as a conversation about the future of public transportation and Google's role in the adoption of driverless vehicles.
