…Google’s got something planned for 2010?

Google Easter Egg

Who knows what Google’s got planned for the new year, but if you’d like to see just how close we are to finding out, head on over to Google.com, leave the search box blank, and click the I’m feeling lucky button. When you do, an Easter Egg countdown timer will appear that’s currently counting down the seconds until 2010, though there’s no indication of what will happen when the clock strikes zero. (And no, you can’t hack your computer clock to make anything special happen just yet, though you can get it to go to zero early by changing your date.)

…Bloomberg thinks you’re a Bozo?

Bloomberg Bozo

Given the current economic crisis, Bloomberg’s iPhone Easter egg seems rather appropriate.

In the bottom corner of the left monitor on their iPhone application’s loading screen, Bozo the Clown stares back at you from the blackness.

To see it, just snap a screenshot and play with the levels until he appears.

At least someone’s getting a laugh out of the situation.

Firefox 3 Robot

If you were among the more than eight million people that helped Firefox set a new world record on Download Day 2008, then it’s time to start tweaking and tuning Firefox 3 to match your needs.

The first stop on your customization journey should definitely be at Lifehacker’s Power User’s Guide to Firefox 3, which digs a little deeper into the program and uncovers shortcuts, tweaks, and even Easter Eggs in the Mozilla monster.

…Mozilla loves robots?

Firefox Robot

If you’ve already made the jump to Firefox 3, Beta 5, then go to your address bar and type about:robots for an Easter Egg page with a robot flavor.

(And if you haven’t made the jump, then I recommend you do so, because I love the new features, and I haven’t had a lot of trouble with it so far. If you’re still worried though, check out Lifehacker’s The Complete Field Guide to Testing Firefox 3.)

…Pixar has secrets?

Pixar

Pixar has a habit of sneaking in-jokes and self-references into their feature films and shorts.

Whether it’s bringing characters from different Pixar projects together or referencing earlier and/or upcoming productions, Pixar likes to fill their films with Easter Eggs and secrets for you to find.

Some of them are rather hidden, and most take a keen eye, so for those of you who don’t want to weed through your old DVDs with a fine toothed comb, Jim Hill has put together a definitive list of locations and screen shots for the doubters.
