Easter Eggs

I saw an interesting feature about "easter eggs" on BBC's "Click".

Easter eggs are hidden bonuses or extras available on commercial products (Software, DVDs, etc.) and usually accessible using a "secret" key combination. Easter eggs are created by a member of the development team trying to escape from the monotony of his usual day to day tasks. It also adds a "fun" part to the product.

The trend is however heading towards a reduction of easter eggs because they add to the overall size of software, which is usually already quite big nowadays.

To see an example of an easter egg go to:

Type "Google easter eggs" in the search field then click on "I'm Feeling Lucky".

You will then be able to play a fun game created by Ken Perlin :-)
