I just launched Google Chrome. I have Google.com as my home default. I was greeted to a Pac-Man game on top of the Google Search form. Being a gamer, I played for a little bit. After the game, I was redirected to a search page with results from keywords of PAC-MAN 30th Anniversary. I didn’t know today that is the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man. That was real cool way for Google to remind Google Chrome users of a big event in video game history. Pretty neat.

I’ve got my surfboard ready waiting for the Google Wave to come along. It has been a very, very long wait. I’ve asked for invites when the Wave first came out six months ago, but not one invite came my way. The initial buzz faded and was quickly forgotten. Today, Google caught unsuspected surfers when the Wave showed up out of nowhere . Google Wave is an application that combines e-mail, IM, document sharing, blogs, wikis and multimedia management. Anyone can sign up to Google Wave by going to wave.google.com and logging with their GMail or Google account. Check it out. Don’t miss the wave.
