Today is April Fools day and Google and CADIE are celebrating the day online. YouTube one of the Google’s owned product had started hoaxing visitors.
Google-owned YouTube flips their videos upside down today part of a “New Viewing Experience”. YouTube suggests you turn “your monitor upside-down” as their internal tests have shown “that modern computer monitors give a higher quality picture” this way. Just append a “&flip=1” parameter to a YouTube video page URL, and the video and other parts of the page will be flipped. (Videos linked from the YouTube homepage also use the flip-parameter today.) You yourself can watch an example video at YouTube.
Well, If you don’t want to be a part of this celebration and need to see the video in actual condition, you can bring a little change in the url and can continue in your own way. Just remove the code “flip=1” from the end of the url, like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBtmcsJ0XUI&feature=featured&flip=1 you can change the url to this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBtmcsJ0XUI.
Not only Youtube but also Google is joining with several hoaxes like Gmail, Picasa and more. For more updates check it out here.
