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.
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 :-).
This blew me away when I first saw it. Apparently some people at Pandorabot have figured out how to create a decent chat bot in 24 hours or less by simply feeding it old transcripts and dialogs.
If you are a Trekkie, or simply curious, you must have a chat with Fake Kirk. This Captain Kirk look-alike bot will try to carry on a conversation with you. You will be amazed or disappointed, but you won’t come away without an opinion.
Here’s what happened when I went on a 5 minute mission to explore a new website. I am the Lieutenant in the chat below.
Lieutenant: What is the Star Date?
Fake Kirk: Stardate Tuesday, October 27, 2009.
Lieutenant: Where is Spock?
Fake Kirk: He is on the planet.Lieutenant: Do you love Tribbles?
Fake Kirk: Only a few of them.Lieutenant: What is the meaning of life?
Fake Kirk: Our five year mission: to seek out new worlds and new civilizations. To go boldly where no man has gone before.
Techie Buzz Verdict:
Fun, just plain old fun. This web app should work in any modern browser with Adobe Flash installed.
Techie Buzz Rating: 4/5
It has been a long time since we did Friday Fun, but seriously we haven’t had time, to have fun in the past few months :-(. However, after a hugely popular series of Twitter humor, in the form of Bringing the fun back to Twitter and Twitter humor once again, we decided to spread our wings and include some funny cartoons depicting Facebook.
So go ahead, feast your eyes and ROFL (Roll on the floor laughing) while you view these funny images and cartoons for Facebook, and of course our funnier commentary to go with it.
Well that’s it for now, too much of Facebook :-). Before you head someplace else, don’t forget to show your love and become a fan of Techie Buzz on Facebook.
Even though there are many feed readers, like Feed Demon and the rest, for reading feeds, I use Google Reader always as I love its simple interface. Recently, when I was browsing, I found a cool feature in Google Reader. I tried this out in the reader and enjoyed it a lot. So, I thought of sharing this with you people, in case you do not know.
Go to the Google Reader. Hit the following keys in the below given order only.
UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, B, A
You will get a ninja feature in the sidebar of the Google Reader. There is one more interesting and cool feature in this Ninja mode. Check out in this video.
To reverse this to normal, again use the same code given above. Do share your feelings about this cool feature through comments below.
Not really. I usually find my daily dose of laughter on twitter by following some really funny people. In this list I will share the users that you could follow and get your daily dose of laughter from twitter.
@funnyoneliners – This twitter user has only one aim, that is to make you laugh by tweeting funny one liners. This is definitely someone you should follow if you love humor and laughing out loud.
@funnyjoker – Another funny person to follow on twitter who shares lots of jokes that are guaranteed to make you laugh. I must warn you though that some of the jokes are rude and sarcastic.
@weirdnews – Weird news can sometimes be very funny. Follow this person to get weird and funny news from across the world.
@meetingboy – Cracks jokes about meetings (we all hate them) and workplaces. If you are bored at work his tweets will definitely cheer you up.
@cracked – If you have every visited cracked.com and had a good laugh, follow this user to get all the latest updates from them directly in your timeline.
Do you follow and funny people on twitter? Do share them with me. Laughter is the best medicine and I certainly don’t mind laughing a lot.
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 :-).
