Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows 10


Starting with Windows 8, Microsoft overhauled the user interface of its ubiquitous operating system which was seen as a way to move towards the more tablet- dominated times.
With its next version of OS lined up for a July 29 release, another overhaul is on its way. From a new default browser to an improved interface; Windows 10 packs in it a lot of new features, one of these being new keyboard shortcuts.

Play Atari Breakout on Google’s Image search


Google is commemorating 37 years of the Atari’s famous game Breakout, which was introduced way back in April 1976, by letting users play the game on Google’s Image Search.
Simply click on Images in Google Search and then type Atari Breakout. The Image search results will then align into blocks and a little easter egg at the bottom for you to play the game.

You get five lives to play the game and at the end you can post your score to Google Plus if you want. Frankly speaking its addictive and its unlikely you will get any work done once you start playing.
Incidentally, the task of designing Breakout’s prototype was given to Steve Jobs, who nicely passed it on to his friend Steve Wozniack, who ended up completing it in 42 days. More on that here.
