CADIE: April fools or not?

As you are reading these lines you have probably already read Google's April fools joke on CADIE (Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity), a self-conscious computer system. Good sense of humour you may say, or great imagination! But could this just be a fun way of introducing a new reality? Could Google be close to building the first self-conscious machine that passes the Turing test? What do you think? After all, if Google cannot make it who can?
