Christmas Fun with Google!

Posted in Free, Games, Internet, Learning with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 17, 2015 by Sirusdark

I saw the latest Google mini-games (also called doodles) and thought I’d share them because they actually make you learn stuff! Music, countries, coding… Try the Santa Map Quiz… You’ll be surprise how hard it is! (or not!)

If you’re too scared getting caught playing cute-childish games, do it with kids! No one will know! :D

Attacks in France – Solidarity by Amazon (and me)

Posted in Did you know, Internet, Website, World with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 14, 2015 by Sirusdark

I was watching the news tonight on the situation in France and nothing less than HOURS later, Amazon.ca had updated their website with these images (did a quick montage):

amazon_montage_solidarity“Solidarity” by Amazon.ca

To my knowledge, this has to be among the fastest corporate social response I’ve ever witnessed. Amazon, I raise you my virtual hat.

To all French citizens and friends, you have my dearest sympathies.

Sincerely,
Sirus

P.S.: Found other companies who made a similar gesture? Share it!
