Humor To commemorate Pac Man's 30 year anniversary, Google has not only made a Pac Man-themed Google logo, but it's playable, and shockingly included the Pac Man theme music, which startled, but ultimately delighted, my officemates and me this morning. If you press the insert coin button, Ms. Pac Man joins the party. I do hope, however, that Google refrains from including theme music on its homepage in the future.

pacman is a bit annoying

Google is my default home page in my browser. I don't mind it playing for a bit, but it never stops. There is no stop button and if I use NoScript to stop it, it affects my use of other google products. They really should have had a stop button or used a separate script that we could control with NoScript.

You can stop it with the little speaker symbol on the left.

I think it was a stupid idea for Google to put sound on by default.

Not "stupid". I wouldn't go that far. But true, they should have disabled the sound by default.
