Here is how not to keep an secret. Geek and Poke at it’s best.
P.S. If you want to keep a secret, make sure not to tweet it on Twitter :-).
Google search is one of the most useful piece of technology on this planet, but why just have fun with the I’m lucky button when you have Mystery Google? Mystery Google is parody of Google Search, which simply does not work at all.
When you land up on the site, you will see a dark background and a search box with buttons which say Searchand Are You Sure?. Looks normal to the eyes, but the fun starts after you enter a query into search box and click on either of the buttons.
When a user enters a query and hits the search button, they are taken to a random search results which are not relevant at all. For example, my search for Who am Iled to some weird query, displayed in the screenshot below.
I played around with this a bit and entered different queries and more often than not, I had a good laugh. If you have some time on hand and just want to while away, hit Mystery Google and try searching for something.
Whoever said torrents were created to share files, should go back and take a look at the stone age. They have had this concept for quite long now, or at-least from what Scott Johnson shows us.
Have fun :-).
All is not gloomy in the tech industry, we do have our share of laughs. Here is a funny cartoon by Noise to Signal which states a funny job benefit: We don’t block Facebook. By the way, don’t forget to check out our earlier laughter riots, in the form Facebook Humor, Bringing the fun back to Twitter and Twitter humor once again.
Well, you can literally get Google in your bathroom, courtesy Google Bathroom Rolls/Tissues. The rolls are sold in Vietnam, so no luck getting them in your bathroom yet if you live in any other country. And no, they are not manufactured by Google Inc. :-).

A couple of days ago a friend of mine got me really interested in the new iPod shuffle. Sure, it can only support the tinny and bass-challenged Apple iPod headphones, sure there are much better players out there with decent-sized screens; however the ability to carry music without worrying about screen or clickwheel damage was quite appealing. So off I went to the Apple India Store (which only allows you to browse, not buy which is very unfortunate for our current business) to get a feel of the prices of the iPod shuffle in India. Here is what I am greeted with:
Yes, the 2GB shuffle is Rs. 3,700 (about $79), while the 4GB shuffle is Rs. 4800 (about $103). But wait! Is that the iPod nano that I see for the same price as the 4 Gig shuffle? I ecstatically clicked on the iPod nano link and voila! Wonder of wonders, the 8 Gig nano is priced at Rs.4800!
Quite funny eh? This is obviously a mistake, as I double-checked with the US store –
Not so lucky!
It is quite appalling to see the official Apple store in India could allow for such a gross mistake. Just imagine the number of people who could have taken advantage of it if there was online shopping for the Indian store!
Here are the links to the Apple India store:
Seems the good folk over at Apple India heard about this post and updated their MRP for their iPod nano.
All I can say is (if you do not mind a little internet slang) LOL pwned
Quite sometime back, we had done a really funny post based on Google Search autocomplete feature for social networking. Autocomplete is a feature in Google search, where search queries are suggested to users based on the words they type. Sometimes these suggestions can be hilarious and at times pretty weird.
If you want to have your share of laugh, or want to share your weird or funny autocomplete suggestions, don’t forget to visit Autocomplete me :-).
We came across a very interesting photograph of what twitter is according to Google on Digg, though that was pretty interesting we decided to check for other interesting terms that Google comes up with through Google Suggest for the other social networking sites, and before we go ahead let us tell you that this is funny :)
Inspiration for this query came from here.
Hope you enjoyed the social networking meanings according to Google, we will try and add to the list once we come up with some good queries, in the meantime stop ROFL :-).
First of all I will be away on a short vacation for few days so you won’t see much posts from me, however the blog will still be kept updated thanks to the other excellent authors of Techie Buzz, you can know more about who writes for Techie Buzz by visiting our about us page.
In the meantime before I leave here is a really nice and funny advertising war between Apple and Blackberry.
Have posted the ads on my Posterous page, so head there to take a look. Ad war between Blackberry and Apple.
Have fun, will be back soon.
I came across a fun site today. If you like surprising yourself, you should visit this site. At FileSwap, you get a random file in return, whenever you upload any file. You can upload nature photos, personal pictures, wallpapers, audio files, icons, videos , just about any form of media file and you’ll get a random file in return, which will be uploaded by another person.
Though this is fun, you should be careful of viruses that might end up on your system. So always make sure you scan the file using an anti-virus software and then see what it’s contents are.
If you do not have any anti-virus software installed, it is not recommended that you use this service !

There are two types of Easter Eggs, one is a specially decorated egg given to people on the occasion of Easter and the other type is basically a intentional hidden message or joke or feature in a computer program, website or video game.
Many popular websites like Google, Yahoo and even quite a few small websites and services hide Easter eggs somewhere on their applications, services or websites, these though are not easy to spot.

It’s been long time since we ran a Friday Fun post, but the times have been so tough, that we haven’t found much time for the funny stuff.
Well though it’s not Friday Fun yet, guess twitter (follow me) has changed something, they are no longer fail whale, they are trying to chill these days. But I don’t blame them, with the winter already in, I guess everybody would be chilling, including me.
Don’t forget to take a look at how we brought the fun back into twitter, when there was only fail whales all around, few months ago.
