Amazon Goes Back in Time for April Fool's

Retailer Rewinds Its Site to 1999

Published on

Editor's Pick rewinds back, back, way back to circa 1999 for its April Fool's prank, which reverts the online retailer's homepage to what it looked like about fifteen years ago. Today, highlighted items include "Cubicle Warfare: 101 Office Traps and Pranks" in books and a whoopie cushion in toys and games.

You're not trapped in the past forever, though. Simply clicking on the Amazon logo will bring you back to 2015, where Amazon is now highlighting its big, new offering--which, suprisingly, is no joke -- Amazon Dash, a button that will help you quickly reorder home suppiles with a simple push.
