I'm confused.

If Google has changed their name to Topeka, why haven't they changed their mapping site name to Topeka maps?

Does it take more than one day to change the name of all of their sites? Maybe it has to propagate through the interweb.

I guess I'll check again tomorrow to see if the change has gone through.

Uh this is April fools day right?

Likely


I want to go like my grandfather did. Peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming at the top of my lungs like the passengers in his car.

I don't think so.

Click the Topeka logo to read about the reason they changed their name.

It may have something to do with Copyright's and the phases of the Moon.

I believe that Google is a copyrighted name whereas Topeka is not so if it's a full moon it makes it more difficult to print envelopes.

I thought you would have known that.

lmfao...moon phases?

Derby - I have it on good authority that it'll be Shawnee Maps because Topeka may cause too much spittle to fly and not everyone can swim.

I'm pretty sure the BusinessWeek article is an April Fool's gag.
