Google and Microsoft trade insults for April Fools
April Fools’ Day provides the springboard for companies to make some unbelievable announcements, but for Google and Microsoft, it serves as the perfect time to poke fun at eachothers’ shortcomings. With Gmail Blue, Google is teasing Redmond over a product that doesn’t officially exist yet, while Microsoft goes back to basics to poke fun at its rival’s “vanilla” search engine. 

This is a good one. #aprilfool

They released a video above of what the shoe can do. The shoe has a google style color and inside theres a electronic that links to a android mobile phone, connects to bluetooth; the shoe uses a loud speaker to enhance your workout, walk or run faster, and keep you in shape. Apple had a solution just like this with their relationship with Nike to offer iOS based solutions for those who workout to keep track of their path, the amount of calories lost, and many other data points. There are also a lot of armbands and watches that will use sensors to keep track of your mileage, heart rate, blood pressure, and so on, in the upcoming months. None of those solutions are more creative than the talking shoe, which speaks on its actual voice. This shoe is a magnificent device and has its own personality to encourage you to workout to keep you in shape; which can trigger when you are inactive. This is just a research and developement video. However footwear companies may also take notes.

This is too wicked!
