Wow, That Was Fast!
April 1, 2010
I’m not usually a fan of the stupid stuff most websites do on April Fool’s Day, but I like what Google is doing with their search results. Note the subtlety:
Wonky search speeds from Google on April 1st
Users are also noting some other fun search speed variations:
- gigawatts (from Back To The Future)
- parsecs (from Star Wars)
- femtogalactic years
- shakes of a lamb’s tail
- epochs (time since Jan 1st, 1970 in computer time)
- at NN hertz
- at warp NN
This beats their most obvious joke hands down, wouldn’t you say?
