Google’s latest Easter egg has a holiday theme to it bringing snow to even those who live in the warmer parts of the world.
Typing “let it snow” into Google.com will return the normal search engine results for YouTube videos of Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra singing the classic song. But then, a few snowflakes will start falling from the top of the screen until all the search results are obscured by a digital blizzard.
Eventually, your entire screen will fill up with “snow” at which point you can draw in/on the snow by clicking and dragging your mouse. You also have the option to “defrost” the screen which will get rid of the frost but snow will continue to fall.
If you are a major follower of anything related to technology then you should know about CES (Consumer Electronics Show) coming up in the next couple days. The show will start on Thursday and run until Sunday the 9th. Over this time period, over 2,500 companies will be showing over 20,000 new products that will be either announced, shown or released. Out of these 20,000 many will be tablets or tablet related products. Hence, why people are calling 2011 “the year of the tablet”.
In the past years, the show has been the birth of Blue-ray, DVDs, HD televisions, 3-D televisions, and even all the way back to Atari’s game “Pong”. Knowing all of this, the show promises this year’s to be bigger and better. Well, it is definatly bigger. There is an 11% increase in size from last year making the show cover about 1.6 million square feet!
But anyways, as stated earlier, this show seems to be mainly focused on the tablet as many companies are joining the competition such as Toshiba, Motorola, and Acer. There will be over 80 tablet computer put on display at the show so obviously there is a lot to look forward to.
That’s it for now, in a couple days there will most likely be a ton of blogs posted because of the massive amounts of new products being released so subscribe to this blog or just keep checking back because it will be a very exciting week!
