Google Easter Eggs

Google is well-known for its jokes, including things like doodles, april fools' tricks and more.Similarly, Google has a number of Hidden Easter Eggs in its search and other products , here's a list of 'some' of 'em
Easter eggs? “A virtual Easter egg is an intentional hidden message, in-joke, or feature in a work such as a computer program, webpage, video game, movie, book, or crossword,” - Wikipedia
easter eggA classic Google example: An animated, rotating graph of a 3D easter egg (click the link to see the animation).
Here's the List of these Easter Eggs by Google Search Easter Eggs
Search for “Tilt” or “Askew
google-easter-egg-tiltSometimes, Google alters search results to display a literal interpretation of your query. Search for “askew” or “tilt,” and sure enough, your results will be displayed slightly akimbo. No SEO manipulation here — they still function as “normal” search results, but they just look crooked.
Search For “Recursion
google-easter-egg-recursion According to Wikipedia, “recursion … is the process of repeating items in a self-similar way. The most common application of recursion is in mathematics and computer science, in which it refers to a method of defining functions in which the function being defined is applied within its own definition. As a logical next step, Google asks, “Did you mean: recursion?”
google-easter-egg-42In his classic book The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams wrote “the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything is 42.” For years, people have been trying to decipher the “hidden” meaning behind the number 42, but Adams himself, late in life, said “The answer to this is very simple. It was a joke. It had to be a number, an ordinary, smallish number, and I chose that one. Binary representations, base 13, Tibetan monks are all complete nonsense. I sat on my desk, stared in to the garden and thought 42 will do. I typed it out. End of story.” Nonsense or not, Google’s calculator returns the number 42 in response to this query.
Search For “do a barrel roll
google-easter-egg-barrelA barrel roll is an airplane maneuver where the pilot executes a complete 360 degree roll while continuing to fly forward at a consistent altitude—as if the landing gear of the plane were rotating around the inside of a barrel. Google took a bit of poetic license with this definition, “spinning” the result page through a 360 degree loop.
Search For “zerg rush
google-easter-egg-zergA “zerg rush” is a tactic originated in the video game Starcraft that involves swarming a low-level or poorly equipped group against an opposing group in the hope that sheer numbers will overwhelm the enemy. Search for zerg rush and you’ll trigger a simplified example of a zerg rush using a swarm of “O’s”, ending up with the traditional “GG” (meaning “good game”). Tip: Clicking an “O” three times kills it—but that may not help, as another swarm has been wiping out search results starting with the bottom of the page.
Search For “conway’s game of life
google-easter-egg-conwayBritish mathematician John Horton Conway devised one of the first computer simulations of “life,” allowing observation of various stages of “evolution” of cells as they interact with one another over time. Conway’s “game” is quite simple – as a “player” you simply create an initial configuration of cells, turn it on, and watch it evolve, with no further interaction. The simulation has been widely used in many areas of computer science research.
Search For “anagram
google-easter-egg-anagramAnagrams are a form of word play, requiring both creativity and a strict adherence to the “rules.” An anagram is the rearrangement of a word or phrase into a different word or phrase, using exactly the same letters but in a different order or sequence. The cleverest anagrams often result in puns or clever innuendo, such as “Clint Eastwood” (an anagram of “old west action”) or for fans of the long-running TV show Doctor Who, a reference to another show in that fictitious universe, an acronym of “Doctor Who” itself, “torchwood.”
Search For “define anagram
google-easter-egg-define-anagramGoogle will present you with a dictionary definition of any word if you preface your query with the word “define.” A definition provides information about the word type, its phonetic pronunciation and often a link to hear how the word is pronounced. In the case of “define anagram” it also offers a clever “Did you mean” alternative.
Search For “bacon number [actor name]
google-easter-egg-baconThere’s a theory called “six degrees of separation” that postulates that every person or thing is six or fewer steps away thanks to our connections. A game called “six degrees of Kevin Bacon” has a goal of linking every actor to Kevin Bacon through no more than six steps. Google lets you discover an actor’s degree of separation from Kevin Bacon by simply searching for “bacon number” followed by the actor’s name.

Google Calculator Easter Eggs

Google’s calculator could technically be thought of as an extension of the search engine—to use it you simply enter equations or expressions directly into the search box and your result appears at the top of search results. Here are some of the more amusing calculator easter eggs:
Search For “binary
google-easter-egg-binaryEnter a search for “binary” and the number of results found is displayed as a binary number, rather than the traditional decimal count. Try the search with other number systems such as “hexadecimal” and “octal” and you’ll see similar results.
Search For “once in a blue moon
google-easter-egg-bluemoonGoogle also offers helpful results for common number-related cliches. Search for “once in a blue moon” and you’ll get “1.16699016 × 10-8 hertz” as an answer. Why? Convert the result from seconds (one hertz is one cycle per second) into years, and you’ll get about 2.7 years—the approximate amount of time between each “blue moon.” Why again? the phrase “blue moon” has nothing to do with the color of the moon. Rather, it refers to a month when there are two full moons, which due to the variation of the lunar cycle and our calendar works out to about one blue moon (a second full moon in a single month) every three years.
You can also have some fun with the Google calculator with numeric phrases like “a bakers dozen“, “the loneliest number” and “the number of horns on a unicorn.”
google-easter-egg-heartIf you’re a real math geek, you can create elaborate equations that Google will compute and then graph as a recognizable shape, such as the easter egg above.
Here’s another one, graphed from the following equation:
sqrt(cos(x))*cos(300x)+sqrt(abs(x))-0.7)*(4-x*x)^0.01, sqrt(6-x^2), -sqrt(6-x^2) from -4.5 to 4.5
An easter egg that’s probably more appropriate for Valentine’s day.

A Couple Of Fun Google Maps Easter Eggs

Just as with search results, Google strives for quality and accuracy in maps search results. Nonetheless, enterprising programmers have snuck some easter eggs into some map search results, and they’re typically harmless, but funny. You also typically have to work harder to surface them. So rather than providing links, I’ll give you screen shots and directions to replicate the results yourself. Start, of course, by navigating to Google Maps.
Walking Directions: The Shire To Mordor
  1. On the Google Maps home page, click get directions
  2. A: “The Shire” B: “Mordor”
  3. Click the blue “GET DIRECTIONS” button
  4. Click the “walking” icon

Walking Directions: China To Japan

  1. On the Google Maps home page, click get directions
  2. A: “China” B: “Japan”
  3. Click the blue “GET DIRECTIONS” button
  4. Click the “walking” icon
Notice for step 300: Jet ski across the Pacific Ocean.

Third-Party Google Easter Eggs

Google’s not the only one creating Googly easter eggs. Here’s a sample of some ester eggs created at Google’s “expense” by others on the Web:
  • Google gravity collapses the Google home page as if it were caught in a black hole.
  • Google space. The Google home page meets Angry Birds.
  • Google sphere. What it says.
  • Where’s Chuck Norris?. Heh. “Google won’t search for Chuck Norris because it knows you don’t find Chuck Norris, he finds you.”
  • Epic Google. When Google get’s too big for its own good?
Did we miss any? Please add your Google easter eggs to the basket in the comments section below

How to make your PC welcome you on bootup

I'm sorry for disappearing for so long but I promise to pay by uploading an awesome thing before the year ends. While working on my new project an idea came to me and here I am publishing a part of it (the complete project will be published once I'm done with it).
We're all(mostly) familiar with Windows welcome screen(which is very non-interactive). So I decided to publish a trick that could help you have a person(kind of) welcome you every time you boot your PC up.
As always just follow the steps:-
1. Open Notepad
2. Copy the code

dim speechobject
set speechobject=createobject("sapi.spvoice")
speechobject.speak "Welcome Sir"

3. Paste on notepad
4. Save the file with the name speak.vbs
5. Press Start+R (To open Run window)
6. Enter shell:startup
7. Copy the file speech.vbs from wherever it is saved
8. Right click in the window opened and select paste shortcut.

Obviously you can change the Message Welcome Sir by changing the text within the quotes , but don't remove the quotes.

Feeling Lazy? Download the setup.

How to hack Windows User password

This article is for recovering a lost windows password, and of course it's time taking, if you want to hack a PC only to access the files or copying them or deleting them follow this post.

Hack a Windows Password Steps->

Choose the Correct Ophcrack LiveCD Version
After clicking the Download ophcrack LiveCDbutton , the webpage above should display.
Click the button corresponding to the version of Windows on the computer you'll be recovering the password on.
In other words, if you've forgotten the password on:
Windows 8: Click on ophcrack Vista/7 LiveCD.Windows 7: Click on ophcrack Vista/7 LiveCD.Windows Vista: Click on ophcrack Vista/7 LiveCD.
Windows XP: Click on ophcrack XP LiveCD.
Just to be clear, the OS of the computer you're using right now doesn't matter. You want to download the appropriate Ophcrack LiveCD version for the computer that you're cracking the password on.
Ophcrack doesn't yet support Windows 10.
On the next webpage, Ophcrack LiveCD should begin downloading automatically. The download is in the form of a single iso.
If prompted, choose to Download File or Save to Disk - however your browser phrases it. Save the file to your Desktop or another location that's easy to locate. Do not choose to Open the File.
The size of the Ophcrack LiveCD software you're downloading is fairly large.
The Windows 8/7/Vista version is 649 MB and the Windows XP version is 425 MB.
Depending on your current Internet speed, the Ophcrack LiveCD download could take as little as a few minutes or as long as an hour to download.

2. Make a drive bootable and copy the iso to it. To make it bootable follow this post.

3. Plug the drive to the victim PC.

4. Start the PC and immediately press ESC or F10 depending upon how is boot menu opened on your PC. You might find which key to press during the startup where usually at the bottom the key info is given.

Wait for the Ophcrack LiveCD Menu to Appear
After the initial startup of your computer is complete, as shown in the previous step, the Ophcrack LiveCD menu should display.
Press Enter as soon as you see such a window.
ISO files are special kinds of files and have to burned differently than you may have burned music or other files. Go back to Step 4 and try burning the Ophcrack LiveCD ISO file again.
Wait for Ophcrack LiveCD to Load
The next screen consists of several lines of text that quickly run down the screen. You don't need to do anything here.
Watch for Hard Drive Partition Information to Display
The next step in the Ophcrack LiveCD boot process is this little window that appears on screen. It may appear and disappear very quickly so you could miss it, but I wanted to point it out because it will be a window that runs in the background that you may see.
This message is simply confirming that a partition with encrypted password information on it has been found on your PC. This is good news!
Wait for Ophcrack LiveCD to Recover Your Password
The next screen is the Ophcrack LiveCD software itself. Ophcrack will attempt to recover the passwords for all of the Windows user accounts that it can find on your computer. This password cracking process is completely automated.
The important things to look for here are the accounts listed in the User column and the passwords listed in the NT Pwd column. If the user account you're looking for isn't listed, Ophcrack didn't find that user on your computer.
If the NT Pwd field is blank for a particular user, the password has not been recovered yet.
Look toward the bottom of the user list - find your user account .
In under one minute, Ophcrack will recover the password to this account You can ignore any other accounts you're not interested in recovering the passwords for.
After Ophcrack recovers your password, write it down, remove the Ophcrack disc or flash drive and then restart your computer. You don't need to exit the Ophcrack software - it won't harm your computer to power it off or restart it while it's running.
Now that your password has been recovered using Ophcrack LiveCD, simply enter your password when prompted after booting your computer normally.

How to Hide secret files into audio files.

Hey Guys today I'm gonna teach you steganography, Steganography is hiding your secret data into song or images or any other such file so that the secret files can be discovered only by someone who knows the correct algorithm and the correct key, it's useful when you want to store data on your work or school PC and don't want it to be seen by anyone specially the sys admins.
To accomplish this task I'm gonna use a third party software called Deep Sound, which you can download from here.
Once you download and install it. It's an easy task to hide data into songs. (This software is capable only of storing them into songs,  however you can always get other such software which can do that in other formats as well)

Steps to hide->
1. Open Deep Sound
2. Hit the button that says Open Carrier files
3. Add a song or any other audio file
4. Click add secret files -> Add the secret files
5. To add a password hit encrypt files and set the password.
6. Now choose the location where the new file is to be saved.
Nd it's done now you have your secret file hidden inside an audio file and cannot by viewed by anyone. To share it with anyone secretly you'd just have to tell the person the password and send the file so that he could decrypt the file on the other end.

If someone opens the audio file the audio is played and the person couldn't make out that some other file is hidden into that audio file.
