    It's getting a little lame now
    http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/...pany-name.html

    It was funny years ago but now the head of the funny department needs to pass the torch.

    Why don't they come up with something like new adwords program to replace natural search results or better yet microsoft and google combine to form microgoogle. Do the math on that one and watch your stocks soar.

    They could make google adwords supported toilet paper that you print out on a toilet side printing device. You get to wipe for free cause the cost is on me.

    I thought it was funny, but it's hard to top PigeonRank and some of their previous ones.

    I have family in Topeka so I checked in with my cousin Marj to see what she thinks of the Google, KS joke. She thinks it's great.

    And if anyone's curious, Topeka is a nice little city to visit. Just don't go there during tornado season.

    Don't knock Topeka which is in the heartland and close to where I grew up. The name change has more to do with trying to get one of Google rural experimental fiber networks: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/...erimental.html

    I was wondering why the name Google had been replaced this morning by Topeka. Only by coming here to ABW did I find out what it was all about.

    I have been following the story on NPR which I listen to in the mornings on my commute.

    I recall a few years back when NPR ran an April Fool's segment. Seems the guy being interviewed was, uh, competing in a national vocal championship where the thing was to faithfully reproduce amazing sounds. He did a fighter jet and a few bars from a complete orchestral piece. I was driving home, and my jaw just dropped. Till the next day, when they mentioned that the day before was April 1.
