GMAIL April Fools fun

GMAIL is know for their April Fools fun and I look forward each April Fools, as I have for the past several years, to see what they are going to try to pull off on us this year. 2009 brought “Gmail AutopilotTM by CADIE” A hilariously funny way of allowing your GMAIL account to automatically respond to incoming emails and more.

Some of the given responses are:

This is how GMAIL describes the fictitious service:

The easiest email could possibly be.

As more and more everyday communication takes place over email, lots of people have complained about how hard it is to read and respond to every message. This is because they actually read and respond to all their messages.

FAQ

How does Gmail mirror my communication style?

The more Gmail messages Autopilot can sample, the better. With fewer than 100 messages, there may not be enough data to calibrate Autopilot effectively. You can adjust tone, typo propensity, and preferred punctuation from the Autopilot tab under Settings.

Does Autopilot work for Gmail chat too?

Yes. Chat was actually simpler to build, given the natural language headway made by Joseph Weizenbaum’s ELIZA. While many claim ELIZA oft times passed the Turing test, Gmail Autopilot passes with 99.9% accuracy due to the inclusion of human-like qualities such as compassion and wisdom and CADIE’s related ability to calibrate to match your chat style.

What happens if a sender and recipient both have Autopilot on?

Two Gmail accounts can happily converse with each other for up to three messages each. Beyond that, our experiments have shown a significant decline in the quality ranking of Autopilot’s responses and further messages may commit you to dinner parties or baby namings in which you have no interest.

How they have time to come up with this ridiculously funny stuff I do not know, but I love it! he he he… until next April Fools.
