Gmail Paper and Google TiSP - Are these April Fool Jokes?

I sprayed coffee out of my nose reading these two new services Google's offering (well, one actually , TiSP)

Apparently, Google is providing free Internet from your toilet, called TiSP (probably stands for Toilet Internet Service Provider) and Gmail Paper which is a service to print and distribute emails from Gmail to hardcopies right to your door step (even attachments get printed).

Oh man, what else will these folks think of more huh? But then again, there's a lot of "privacy" concerns around Gmail paper and of course, the toilet bit, i just hope it's an April fool's joke.
Anyway, kudos Google for being so crazy. Love you guys!

Here's the excerpt from the FAQ from TiSP that had me expelled liquid from my nose.

"How can Google offer this service for free?

We believe that all users deserve free, fast and sanitary online access. To offset the cost of providing the TiSP service, we use information gathered by discreet DNA sequencing of your personal bodily output to display online ads that are contextually relevant to your culinary preferences, current health status and likelihood of developing particular medical conditions going forward. Google also offers premium levels of service for a monthly fee (see below).Note: We take your privacy very seriously. So we treat all TiSP users' waste-related personal information with tremendous discretion, in accordance with our Privacy Policy."
