Sir Richard Branson has launched Virgin Volcanic, on 1 April no less, promising to let people got to the center of the earth and back via their nearest volcano.

“Only 500 people have been to space, only three people have been to the bottom of the ocean, but no one has ever attempted to journey to the core of an active volcano. Until now,”

We’ve been working around the clock on our bold new design, destined to become the default view for all photos on Flickr – and we can’t wait to show it to you today!  Your photos will be re-envisioned in a glorious black and white Atkinson Dither, removing the distraction of those many many megapixels and stripping your art back to its most original, naked, beautiful form.

BMW running coach

BMW have a long history of running a BMW April Fools advert and April Fools Day 2012 is no exception with ads running in today’s UK broadsheet newspapers under the headline ‘turn your car into a coach’:

BMW state: ‘As an official sponsor of London 2012, BMW has been inspired to develop a new technology helping customers to boost their fitness in the run up to the Games. The new driverless Running Coach feature uses a combination of Connected Drive technologies and surround view cameras to enable the car to follow the runner, at a safe distance, while pounding the pavement. To help with motivation, integrated exterior speakers play encouraging words while the Lock Out Logistics feature makes sure that any distance set is completed without cheating.
