Oh no, Google’s changed its name!

Every morning I get up and start perusing the web for interesting articles (typically dealing with Tech and Finance).  During this time I often end up at Google’s website at least once…today though, I decided to use Topeka…at least that’s what Google’s apparently renamed itself.
