Google always has some amusing ideas for April Fools' Day, but this year things went a little too far. Gmail came up with a "drop the mic" prank that replaced the Send and archive button with Send + Mic Drop in the free version of the service.
When you hit the mic drop button, Gmail would insert a GIF of a Minion from the Despicable Me and Minions movies dropping a mic. The conversation would then be archived. Sounds like a great plan, but this year's prank had some unfortunate consequences. That mic drop button replaced Gmail's "send and archive" option, which many people use for professional reasons. The uproar, as you can imagine, as been deafening.
