Google Changes Name to ‘Topeka’

On its blog, Google announced, “Today we are pleased to announce that as of 1AM (Central Daylight Time) April 1st, Google has officially changed our name to Topeka.”

April Fool’s!

All jokes aside, in the air of April Fool’s Day, Google announced that it would be changing its name to Topeka, after the capital city of Kansas.

Topeka it, I mean Google it.

I remember a previous Google April Fool’s Joke on the Gmail client. Users were informed they would send a finite number of emails and control the date the email was sent.

Ie: If today were January 30th – I could send an email today and have it dated as being sent on Jan 25th.

Meanwhile, the British news media continued its tradition of faux April Fool’s day reports.

The Sun reported that a page of its newsprint was flavored and offered readers a “hidden taste” if they licked the page.

And BBC Radio revealed that William Shakespeare’s mother was French!
