A YouTube easter egg

software-easter-egg

 

If you haven’t heard of Easter Eggs (not the chocolate type) in relation to software, there are hidden features in software that are activated usually by some keyboard combination. Once activated you, the user, are rewarded with some sort of graphics or sometimes even a game.

Now you know what they are, here’s one that can be found on www.youtube.com – so head over there and load up any random video. When the video starts to play, hit the pause button, then hold the left arrow key and at the same time hit the up arrow key, release both immediately. You will be rewarded with a simple snake game. Enjoy.

      That’s a shame, don’t try it whilst youtube ads are running and make sure you hold the left arrow down and at the same time hold the up arrow and it should work!
