Some Google Fun on Google+

17 December 2012 BY

Google gives us a lot of headaches when it comes to business, but through the years they have also given us a lot of things to smile or even laugh about. April fools jokes, Easter Eggs, you name it.

Since the end of the year is approaching we figured it would be fun to look back at some fun things Google did in the past like those Easter Eggs and April fools jokes. Every day until the end of the year we will share one on our Google+ page. On this page we will collect them all. All jokes are collected by our specialist on this area: Michel Wester.

For this special occasion we will share the first one today here as well, for the next ones do follow our State of Search Google Plus account to see them all!

Our First One:

Google TiSP

Today we start with an old joke and this is Google TiSP.

TiSP was introduced in 2007 as the new free in-home wireless broadband service. The unique thing about the service was that it would work through the toilet and the sewers. TiSP was developed with the support and assistance of a large number of major metropolitan water companies.

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!?
