Net66 Video Blog: Take a look at Google’s Easter Eggs

Google have long had a good sense of humour. They offer tons of “extra” services that many companies don’t. For example they add topical features that pop up at the right time.

These bonus features are usually hidden but can be discovered. Termed as “Easter Eggs”, because you have to hunt for them, these bonus features are always a bit of fun. Just like the Atari game you can play on Google Images.
