Mystery Google Seeker is a Funny Google Search Parody

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.

Apple India Store insists that a 4GB iPod shuffle is equal to an 8GB iPod nano

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:

iPodShuffle

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!

iPodNano

Quite funny eh? This is obviously a mistake, as I double-checked with the US store –

AppleUS

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:

UPDATE:

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

Find Weird Google Autocomplete Suggestions

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 :-).
