Google's Pac-Man logo chomps down on power pellets...and work productivity

Did you try out the Google Pac-Man logo game last week? Of course you did…everyone had to! A playable Google logo with a Pac-Man theme? I think we are all guilty of sneaking in a few ghost chases throughout the weekend.

Believe it or not, some analysis has been done to see just how much time was spent playing that logo. The startling details are…

* Google Pac-Man consumed 4,819,352 hours of time (beyond the 33.6m daily man hours of attention that Google Search gets in a given day)
* $120,483,800 is the dollar tally, If the average Google user has a COST of $25/hr (note that cost is 1.3 – 2.0 X pay rate).
* For that same cost, you could hire all 19,835 google employees, from Larry and Sergey down to their janitors, and get 6 weeks of their time. Imagine what you could build with that army of man power.
* $298,803,988 is the dollar tally if all of the Pac-Man players had an approximate cost of the average Google employee.

If you missed out on the logo fun, don’t worry. You can still check it out right here.
