Google Becomes Topeka on April 1st
Google is up to its normal April Fool’s Day hijinks, first of all renaming the website in honor of Google, Kansas, aka Topeka. Early last month Topeka, Kansas announced they would be changing the town’s name to Google as part of the competition to become one of the choosen cities for Google’s 1Gbit Fibre Broadband.
According to the company formerly known as Google, the official name change to Topeka was due to the kinship felt with the city and its important American history. The company formerly known as Google has released some simple guidelines for use of their new name.
It also seems that since the change of the company name, all vowels have disappeared from the Gmail site.
