Play Pac-Man using your neighborhood streets on Google Maps
A new Easter Egg revealed yesterday lets you play Pac-Man using real road maps instead of the standard maze. When you open GoogleMaps you will likely see an option in the lower left corner to play. And, if there aren’t enough roads in the area you look for, you can hit “I’m feeling lucky” and it’ll find a spot on a map to play. If for some reason you’re struggling to find Pac-Man, search for “times square”—apparently he’s there.

Of course, if you’d like to do your own pranking but didn’t plan ahead, there’s still time. Buzzfeed has a list of 17 ways to mess with someone’s technology—some of which only take a minute or less if you can get on your coworker’s computer or have time to put a sticky note over their mouse sensor. Likewise, Digital Trends also has their own list, but many are a bit more involved. Still, I had no idea there was a broken screen app you could download.
Oh! And if you need non-mean ideas for your kids, we’ve got those right here.
