Google Wifi Balloons? April Fools?

If I hadnt read it in the Wall Street Journal Id be as skeptical as Techdirt, but it appears Google might be interested in a company that deploys wifi-equipped balloons.

OK, let that sink in.

Yes, a company that attaches $1500 of wireless technology to $50 balloons, uses farmers to release them, watches them burst after 24 hours then, get this, little parachutes bring the transmitters safely back to earth!

Say it with me”Are You Kidding Me?”

It sounds so absurd that I really dont know where to start. Seriously, Im lost for words. Is it April Fools already?

Go and read the WSJ piece then come back and let me know what you think about it.
