Let’s have Fun with Google :D

Google, you must have come across the internet giant while surfing on the net. In our day to day life we use Google, mostly the Google search to find our question’s answers. ¬†Sometimes I also use Google¬†to know¬†whether¬†my internet working or not!! I think Google is most searched page over the Internet. It’s close to us because it has¬†answers to most of our question.

Today, I thought to do something funny on Google & I found few tricks by which we can have fun. I think many of you must be knowing about the tricks but I would like to share few of the tricks which I have come across.

1) do a barrel roll – If you have nothing better to do, type “do a barrel roll” into the Google search engine. You will come across that the webpage takes a spin. It was one of the trick which i used to do most when i came across it.

2) tilt – If the first trick entertains you, then you will definitely enjoy this one too. Type “tilt” in the Google search box. You will see that the screen is slightly tilted.

3) zerg rush” –¬†This one is amazing. Search “zerg rush“, after the search completes within a second a lot “O’s” will fall from the top of the page & will start to eat up the search results. You need to kill those invaders and make score which is reflected on the upper right quarter. This is a reference to the video game StarCraft.

4) Atari Breakout” –¬†If you are getting bored this will definitely make your mood slightly better. Search “Atari Breakout” and then click on the images section and just wait for a second as Google prepare’s a game for you. It’s Breakout which we used to play in our old Gaming console’s.

5) google gravity” –¬†Type “Google Gravity” in the Google search¬†engine. Then, open the first link with heading “Google Gravity -Mr. Doop” then see the whole page ¬†crumbles. Or¬†type in “Google gravity” ‚Äď and hit “I’m feeling lucky on the search page if your Instant predictions are not working.

So, I got these tricks which were easy & much more interesting. If you find more tricks then share with us in the comment section.

Bye Bye Orkut: Google to Shut Down Its First Social Network

Do you remember when was the last time you wrote a scrap? When was the last time you logged into your Orkut account. Ya, In fact, I also don’t remember the last time I used Orkut.

Orkut, Google’s first social networking site, will cease to exist after September, with the Internet giant deciding to shut down the service launched 10 years ago. Brazil & India were the most attracted towards this social site. I remember, I was never into Orkut that much but I used to see the craze in people around me, my friends & relatives. How eager they used to be when students of my class were heading back home. The excitement was just for using Orkut & interacting with different people.

Orkut was launched in 2004, the same year when Facebook was founded. Facebook is now the world’s largest social network with 1.28 billion users.¬†Suddenly, people were talking about how Facebook was the “next big thing”. And before you knew it, people were joining Facebook, adding it to their social networking collection. Preferences changed in such a way that people visited Facebook once every day, and Orkut once a year.

One of the most interesting features of Orkut was the who viewed your profile option. Essentially, a user would get to know if someone had visited his or her profile. Users would be excited at the prospect of a stranger visiting their profile. Eventually, Orkut did come up with an option where you could prevent someone from seeing whether you had visited one’s profile – the only catch was that the same option would apply to you as well.

My profile has less than 100 scraps & very few photos. Many Orkut users will archive their pictures and details from their profile, I intend to leave mine behind as a token of thanks.

Orkut has fallen down rapidly, but it will always be credited with bringing us our first, raw social networking experience. To quote the Google blog post that announced Orkut was going obsolete¬†this September: “Orkut helped shape life online before people really knew what ‘social networking’ was.

Thanks Orkut.. ūüėź
