What if Google and other popular sites would exist in the ’70s or ’80s and how would they look and function. After watching the popular BBC Comedy “Look Around You” the Dutch web editor Jo Luijten came up with the idea to think about how Google and Twitter would look like in the eighties.

It resulted in the video’s below, besides Google and Twitter Luijten also made video’s of Angry Birds, Draw Something and there’s a video of how Facebook would look in the ‘90s. In an interview with Wired Luijten told he is now looking at YouTube, I’m curious how that will look like :-).

Nice job, you found it!

Now, go try out the 12th one:

Use Google Translate to bypass a paywall...

Ran into a page you can't read because it is blocked or paywalled? Here's a quick trick (doesn't always work, but often does!):

Type the page into Google translate (replace the example with the page you want):

http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&u=http://example.com/

How about that!?
