Early April Fools joke at Google Finance?

Go to Google Finance and follow these steps:

  1. Select the stock screener with default criteria (wide open ranges).
  2. Sort results by market capitalization.
  3. Note that AAPL, whose market cap is around $321B does not appear at #2 after XOM (about $417B) as expected.
  4. Change criteria to show stocks whose market cap is between $200B and $400B .  It still doesn’t show up.

Is this part of a forthcoming April fools joke – a world without Apple?   If Apple didn’t exist, Google would have had to invent it, right?
