SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- If you feel the urge to drop a quarter into your smartphone, tablet or computer while looking up a location on Google Maps today -- you can thank April Fools' Day and the playful people at Google. The online behemoth has transformed its virtual maps into scenes from the iconic Pac-Man video game. Google added an option to convert its popular navigation service into the Pac-Man video game yesterday -- to mark the time it became April 1 in Asia. Google often shows off its playful side as part of the April Fools' frivolity.
IN THE NEWS: CHINESE COMPUTER TAKEOVER
BEIJING (AP) -- Chinese authorities have taken over computers both inside and outside its borders to launch cyberattacks against the Web site of an anti-online censorship group. Greatfire.org says it was a target of the Chinese cyberattack -- and that one of its U.S.-based web resources was set upon electronically. Greatfire says the Chinese denial-of-service attacks have intermittently shut down Github, which is based in San Francisco. Greatfire produces mirror Web sites that let Chinese users see information normally blocked by government censors. Because of that, the group doesn't disclose its location.
