I caught this via Google Australia this morning - apparently Google has come up with a new technology and created the gBall - more information is available here.
In other exciting news this morning was the development that Shane Warne was being flown to South Africa to join the Australia Cricket team. He is said to be thrilled to have received the SOS from Ricky Ponting. [I heard it via NOVA].
Update: Pranksters out in force today... [via The Age]. And here [SMH]. Apparently the Guardian was going to the birds. [Tweet Tweet]. Anyone get any other ones?
