April Fools News : Google now Topeka!
Google has done it again! Following the yearly tradition of playing an April Fools prank on the world, Google has just updated its blog announcing change in its Company name. “Google .Inc will now be called Topeka .Inc” says Eric Schmidt, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Topeka .Inc (earlier Google .Inc) in the post.
