Google Pac-Man costs 4.82 million productivity hours in one day


When Google launched its playable Pac-Man 30th anniversary Google Doodle last Friday, they thought it might be popular, but not quadruple visit times!
RescueTime, makers of productivity tracking and optimisation software found the following…
• 4,819,352 hours of time lost. This is above the 33.6 million man hours of attention Google gets on a regular day.
• More than $120 million in lost productivity, assuming the cost of the average Google user is $25 an hour (that’s pay plus benefits).
• 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.

Thanks Kotaku
