Google Pac-Man logo a time-waster

Chomping up time

The playable logo used to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man on Google's main site unsurprisingly resulted in millions of hours of joyously wasted time.

RescueTime blog did a bit of math to figure out that the playable logo ate up 4,819,352 hours on May 21.

That's a staggering amount of time spent playing games in the middle of the work day. All that productivity lost to in celebration of an arcade classic.

Did you play the Google Pac-Man logo last week? If so, did you get caught at work or were you able to sneak a game in unnoticed?
