Ms. Spo-Pac-Man is here on Google Maps

Where does April Fools' Day come from?

With Google having yet to state how long the brilliant, playable easter egg will be around, you'll want to get a game in now before it's too late.

You can download Google Maps right now for either iOS or Android.

Uber Now Lets You Adjust Pickup Location
The new feature is now being rolled out today for the iOS Uber app in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. No word yet on its availability for the Android app or for other territories just yet.

Open your maps app (update it first if needed) and you'll find a pink bubble with Ms. Pac-Man above your usual options on the right.

The Internet browser for Google Maps also turns into a game of Ms. Pac-Man, but to navigate the map you must use the arrow keys on your keyboard. Let us know what you think in the comments.

LAGO Act seeks to make Trump visitor logs public
SinceTrump took office, the page of White House Records on whitehouse.gov has a message saying " This page is being updated ". Exceptions to the measure would be allowed, including for security reasons and "purely personal" visitors.

This arcade game is not the sole entertainment stunt that Google has in its storehouse of exciting stuff.

Back in 2015, one of Google's best pranks was turning Google Maps into a game of Pac-Man, a productivity-destroying joke that set the bar for the company's pranks. Take Ms. Pac-Man on a leisurely waltz through the flowing, ribbon-like drives of Jardim Burle Marx. And since it's already April Fools' Day somewhere in the world, the game launched in middle of the day Mountain Time on Friday.

Putin ready to meet Trump in Finland if it hosts summit
"Do we want to completely break off diplomatic relations?" He got it slightly wrong: It was former President George H.W. Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.

If you thought you would avoid April Fools' Day gags and pranks this year because the actual day falls on a Saturday, think again. This became hugely popular and was later put back online just so people could keep playing it. It was twice as fast as Pac-Man and had much cooler "in-between level" skits. This is a good spot to get warmed up before the real test of your abilities come into play.
