Did you fall for any?

In the spirit of good fun, companies went to town with jokes and pranks for April Fools' Day this morning -- and some were more believable than others. 1. Samsung's Blade Edge This morning tech giant Samsung introduced the Blade Edge, the world's first smartphone and knife combination. The Blade Edge allows you to have conversations while you chop food, or even put video chat on and show people what you're chopping. The company even posted a legit looking blog post about the Blade Edge, complete with features and specs.

2. Pac-Man in Google Maps

This one is definitely a treat for gamers! For April Fools, Google, added a Pac-Man style map view. If you click on the Insert Coins on the side, you will receive hints about which locations to look up in order to see the Pac-Man style looking maps, the Pac-Man ghosts, and Pac-Man himself. Not only will the map look like a Pac-Man game, you'll actually be able to play Pac-Man there as well.

All you have to do is insert your phone into the port at the front of either your right or left shoe, raise it to the perfect angle and click the internal button with a tap of your toe to take the photo.

4. Google Backwards
