Google Renamed As Topeka As An April Fools' Joke

Google is never one to shy away from April Fools’ Day, and the search engine took the opportunity to rename itself Topeka for the day. Topeka refers to the Kansas-based city that unofficially changed its name to Google, in a bid to attract the search engine giant to use the city as a test bed for its ultra-high-speed broadband project trial. The move certainly brought a lot of attention to the city, and apparently it has also become the sixth most talked about topic on Twitter. The downside for the city is that Google has stressed that move has no bearing on which municipality will be selected for the project, which recently has garnered a lot of publicity.
