Google’s PacMan

Remember the day Google put PacMan on the searching home page? It was May 21, 2010 — PacMan’s 30th birthday. You could actually play the game — it was great! It was such a hit that they’ve kept it available for everyone.

RescueTime, a blog which deals with attention data, did a calculation to determine how much time was lost due to Google’s PacMan. Here are the results:

  • 4,819,352 hours were spent playing or watching Google’s PacMan; time spent searching Google was above this
  • $120,483,800

But wasn’t it worth it?
