What are Easter Eggs

Easter eggs are special little extra tidbits or surprises programmers put into their programs. It usually involves doing some strange things (usually hitting an odd key combination at a specific time) in a program to see a little bonus surprise. Recently, many movies on DVD and video games began including these bonus features. Just do a websearch for the name of your favorite recent movie or game and “Easter egg” to see if there’s a surprise waiting for you! There are even websites [1] dedicated to listing newly discovered Easter eggs.
