Rory McIlroy was one of the many people who fell for the Google Nose April Fools’ Day prank. Google has become known for running hoaxes on April Fools’ Day. On Monday, they claimed to roll out a new program called “Google Nose” and said the site was in BETA mode. A landing page was created — complete with the full Google look — and a YouTube video was even created to introduce the product. Google Nose claimed to allow users to search for somethin and smell it using the Google Nose option. The promo video showed people sniffing their computer screens and mobile devices, making it look real. So, did you fall for the Google Nose hoax? If so, you are not alone. Anyone else been fooled today by google nose!? I’ve been sniffing my phone for the last 10 minutes and not smelling anything!! Haha idiot! — Rory Mcilroy (@McIlroyRory) April 1, 2013 Don’t sweat it, Rory. A few years ago, Google got me by promising a new service that would allow one to unsend previously sent emails via Gmail. LBS also fell for an April Fools’ Day hoax from Mike Tyson today. Those Google rascals!
