Here's a fun little easter egg in Captain America: The Winter Soldier: In the beginning of the movie, we get a peek of Captain America's list of things he missed out on while he was asleep. Things like I Love Lucy and the Moon landing and Steve Jobs fill up his cute "things to catch up on to do list" but the funny thing is that the list is different depending on which country the movie is shown in.

What's the Best Hidden Easter Egg You've Found In Something?

Yesterday we were treated to an eye-popping new Star Trek Into Darkness trailer, but hidden within it was a link to a brand new poster. You had to be eagle-eyed to spot the thing, and have a super-sharp monitor to boot, but it was hidden in plain sight alright. That got me thinking. I really love it when developers, producers, and artists take the time to hide things for people to find in their works. But what's the best one you've ever found? Read More >>

Is This the PS4 or Just Another Crappy Bluetooth Speaker?

Sony's teasing something over on its Facebook page. It looks like a red, round thing that pops open. It might reveal a PS4 disc tray or, more likely, the hole you plug your MP3 player into in order to get the party started. Or, even less thrillingly, it might be an Easter egg. A joke. A stupid, rubbish joke, that we've just fallen for. What do you think? Thing or no thing? [Facebook] Read More >>

QOTD: Should Google Quit Jumping the Shark With Its Easter Eggs and Google Doodles?

Before you rush off to Google's homepage to check for yourself whether it's actually celebrating Tess Daly's birthday -- of course it's not. (That fine image was mocked up by @TheManWhoFell, one of Twitter's funniest users.) But the point is, it could be real. How many times in the past two years have you thought "why is Google celebrating the 157th anniversary of some niche invention?" or "I wish Google would stop fooling around with easter eggs such as "askew" and "zerg rush" on its search page, and update my HTC Magic to Android 4.0.3* already"?

Not Even Spotify Is Safe From the Nyan Cat

After infiltrating Windows 7; the internet, and of course your eardrums, it appears the poptart-kitteh has snuck its way inside the Spotify progress bar.
