Tesla CEO and Founder Elon Musk is known for encouraging his software engineers to incorporate Easter Eggs into the company's EVs. That's why we've been graced with such niceties as a Santa Mode, and more recently, the game Pole Position that can be played using your steering wheel and brake pedal. Tesla's latest Easter Egg will have you yelling "Great Scott," because "you're about to see some serious sh*t!" It was found by a redditor earlier this week who just so happened to stumble across the Back to the Future reference in the Tesla iOS app. When your Tesla EV has 121 miles of range left, you simply tap on the battery icon within the app which will enable the Easter...

One of the things that I have never understood are the folks who like to flip to the last page in a book and see how it ends before they read the book. I've also never understood people that want to beat a game as fast as possible. If you are a gaming fan and plan to pick up the game Far Cry 5 when it launches next week, there is a way to beat the game before it even gets started. This secret ending is super easy to enable as well; you simply have to “not” do something. That something you don’t do is place the handcuffs on the main baddy of the game, Jacob Seed. In the first scenes of the game, you are part of a group of U.S. Marshals walking into Seed's church to arrest... Read more...
It may be time for Christmas and other December holidays, but Tesla has decided to inject some Easter into the current season. Just days ago, the company released yet another Easter egg; and in this holiday season, it couldn't be more appropriate. Once the latest Easter egg is activated, your Tesla infotainment system on the in-dash display will switch into Santa Mode with the jolly old elf on his sled. And when using autopilot, it changes all of the surrounding traffic into reindeer. You could say that Tesla really sleighed this one! To access the hidden treat, you need to have your vehicle updated to the 2017.50.2 firmware. At that point, you must tap and hold the T in "Tesla" on the main... Read more...
Silicon art is nothing new, though usually you need a mighty strong microscope to see the hidden gems etched at the microscopic level on chips and wafers. That is not the case with Microsoft's powerful Xbox One X console. Anyone who cracks open the chassis will be able to see a special piece of art included on the green printed circuit board in the upper right corner. The artwork is of a minuscule Master Chief sitting atop a scorpion, sort of in the same vein as a cowboy riding a bucking bronco. This is not a random Easter Egg—Microsoft is paying homage to Halo, a hugely popular game franchise that these days is managed and developed by 343 Industries, a subsidiary of Microsoft Studios, and the...

For those of you who read the headline and showed up with pitchforks and torches, set them aside, we're well aware that you've been sending Piston Honda and Bald Bull to the mat with a well timed punch for nearly three decades now. However, what you probably didn't know is there's a subtle visual cue among the spectators in Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! that lets you know exactly when Little Mac should take a swing at his opponent. Amazingly this little Easter egg has gone unnoticed on the NES for 29 years, but is now public knowledge thanks to reddit forum member midwesternhousewives, who posted a video showing the visual cue. If you look closely, there's a bearded fellow in the first row behind... Read more...
