    Google has changed its name to: Topeka in honor of the city of Topeka, KS changing its name to Google, KS. http://www.google.com/

    Well, it *is* April Fools Day and in honor of this name change, here are Google's past April Fools hoaxes

    Google's hoaxes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Ya gotta love Google for going to such great extents to entertain us :p

    How did I find this tidbit of info? I got furious at the name change and GOOGLE'D "This had better be an April Fool's gag" and was taken to the wikipedia page! ROTFLOL :D...Amazing.

    I wonder if I send in my Hero will they erase the Google logo and replace it with Topeka. I saw the name change as soon as I got on my computer since Google is my homepage, with thier history I figured it was a joke.

    Overall, I'm not really a fan of April Fools Day ... but I have to say Google does it with some class.
