Google tricks


A couple hours ago, for a few seconds, the Google search box was typing backwards. I didn’t do this…changed no settings, didn’t type it backwards myself…nothing. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I entered ‘National Geographic’ with a typo. And sure enough, few seconds later it was typing just fine – right to left.

A Google trick or a system quirk? I don’t know.

    Did this occur after you drank a couple beers?

    Well, I wouldn’t have been searching national geographic a couple beers down!:)

    I’m sorry, but what does this have to do with Minneapolis?

    Well, presumably, he was sitting at his computer in Minneapolis…

    Thought this might be of general interest…Minneapolis or any other city.
