Google has created a festive Easter egg for smartphone users. On your mobile browser, simply do a Google search for [let’s go caroling] and a menu will pop up allowing you to select from "Jingle Bells", "Deck the Halls", and other holiday favorites.
Google officially turns 15 today. For the first time, the search giant is wishing itself a happy birthday with a playable Google Doodle in which you play as the lowercase "g" in Google's name and whack a piñata to score as much candy as possible.
To celebrate its 15th birthday, Google decided to share a neat Easter egg showing how Google used to look in 1998. To see it for yourself, simply search for "google in 1998" (without the quotes). Sadly, you can't do an actual search on 1998 Google.
In case you missed it, as part of Geek Week, YouTube added a fun Easter egg that lets you play the classic "Missile Command" Atari video game. To trigger it, play any video, click on white space, type in "1980", and your game will load.
If you're a big fan of "Doctor Who", then you'll love the new Google Maps Easter egg. When you go to the address of the Police Telephone Box – a.k.a., TARDIS - you can actually "look inside" to see exactly how it appears on "Doctor Who".
In conjunction with the arrival of "Star Trek Into Darkness", Bing has added a couple of features that fans should appreciate: a home page Easter egg when you search for "beam me up" and a new language option to Bing Translator: Klingon.
A new Easter egg turns Google Images into a playable classic arcade game with a Google twist. Head to Google Images and type "Atari breakout" to fire up "Image Breakout" and start destroying rows of images by bouncing a ball into them.
Type in almost any horror movie title and you will see bats hanging from Google's Knowledge Graph 'card' results. Almost any, because the SEW team tried a bunch of different results and not every known horror film triggered results.
Google users are being treated to a variety of fun “facts” about the television and movie actor via the Knowledge Graph feature. Among the Norris facts: "bullets dodge Chuck Norris" and "the quickest way to a man's heart is Chuck Norris's fist."
This week, SEW has mostly been playing with Siri. So much so we tried to 'score a date' with the robotic personal assistant and made into a comic. Here are all the easter eggs SEW found simply by asking Siri weird questions.
