I am back with a few more great YouTube Tricks/Easter Eggs!
Just Open YouTube and open any video of your choice, (I used this video: God Is an Astronaut – When Everything Dies) and type “1980” (without the quotes) but not in the search box, click anywhere on the white spaces at the sides, and just type “1980” (without the quotes).
YouTube will shift the video down and open up a screen saying “MISSILE COMMAND Blow the missiles out of the sky! Click to Continue” as shown below:
Click on that and a game will start as shown below, you have to defend your Video from getting destroyed by the incoming missiles.! (pretty cool! huh?) Just aim with your mouse and click to shoot.
The health bar of the video is shown at the top, (the gray bar) the game will finish when this health bar gets to Zero.
here is a video demo of the Easter Egg:
have fun playing!! 🙂

You’ll enjoy it..

Google has already released Android 4.1 code name: Jelly Bean
here are a few of the new features in Jelly Bean and a few Tips and Tricks as well that you can try out on Jelly Bean!
This is one of the most highlighted feature of Jelly Bean. With this feature you can now get all you information like weather, location, sports,news, searches etc all in one place, which save a lot of effort in going to various apps for doing different things. Users can quickly launch Google Now from the home screen or from the lock screen, by long pressing the home button a white semicircle pops out with the Google logo printed on it. Now, just drag your finger towards the logo and it will instantly launch Google Now. The Google Now function can also be launched by pressing the Back button on the home screen and then moving your finger towards the same semicircle and logo that appears on the screen.
You can also talk to Google now same as Apple’s Siri ask random questions and “Now” will answer back or search the web for relevant information. not as good as Siri though, but it’s a start in that direction.
Check this out:
- Go to www.google.com
- type “50 most popular women”
- open the first search result
- check out Entry number 7.
- Click on this Let Me Google That For You Link: 50 most popular women
I don’t know if the website is trolling (like myself) or is that really the case. 😛
P.S. no pun intended, just for fun! 😛
Another awesome Christmas special Google Doodle. This one plays the Jingle Bells tune when you click on the boxes below the modified Google logo.

Trick #7: Let It snow
- Got to www.google.com
- type “let it snow” in the search box (without the quotes)
- press enter.
Click on this Let Me Google That For You Link: Let It Snow
and here is a screenshot.. It will start snowing and the window will start to freeze from the sides.. its cool! try wiping the snow off with your mouse 🙂
P.S. this is a seasonal trick and may not work all the time.
how many of you did know that all the searches you do on Google are actually stored and can be viewed too.!! ?
Shocked? It’s true. You can view your Google search history by clicking on this link:
This search history will be associated with a Gmail account i.e only those searches will be saved here which are done by you when you were actually logged-on to Google through any of the Google’s products and will be linked to your Gmail account. How to know that you are logged on or not? Simple – go to www.google.com and see at the top there will be something like this :
there will be your name at the top right side (This is for the new look of Google in which they have integrated it with Google+)
many users won’t be too happy on knowing that their history and actions are being recorded and saved by Google (for privacy or whatever reasons) so, for them there is an option to turn of this feature by clicking on the ‘Pause’ button in the Web history option as shown below.
Optionally you can also delete all of your previous history (by clicking on Remove all web history) or only some selective items (by clicking on Remove)
In the screenshot above, it shows “Your current search history is currently empty” because I had paused the feature of web history and hence no history was being saved.
Trick#5: Google Guitar
This is my favorite Google trick and it is in fact an interactive Google doodle made as a Tribute to Les Paul on his 96th birthday.
