Google puts 'Solitaire' and 'Tic Tac Toe' directly in search results

Google puts 'Solitaire' and 'Tic Tac Toe' directly in search results Procrastinators of the world unite! Solitaire and Tic Tac Toe are now just a Google search away on mobile and desktop.
Don't have any game apps installed and need to kill a few minutes? Head over to Google.com and simply search solitaire and you will see an option to tap (or click) to play a game of solitaire, with both Easy and Hard difficult settings.

If you want to take on Google in a game of Tic Tac Toe, then just search Tic Tac Toe and you will be marking your X's or O's immediately.



Remember, Google will also flip a coin for you if you search flip a coin, and it will also play animal sounds if you ask it to. For example, search what sound does a cow make?

Why? Well, why not I guess.

HA HA HA........I was JUST about to login and make similar comment. AD has lost its gumption.

I decided to give benefit of doubt and wait till this has been up for OVER A WEEK......now it's 8 days since last post.

Perhaps the moderators should start allowing peeps to randomly provide news articles since they seem to be falling short.



At this rate.........I'll become an "addict" in 6-8 years

From now on though.......I'm done visiting this site daily or more than weekly. Possibly only monthly.

Shame on you AD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has been too long for a vacation (for the entire staff), nevermind that this happened less than a month ago as well. Something tells me most of the staff is part-timed or gone entirely. What a shame, it was a great site once...but then there were some great BBS servers once too...times change. Maybe before the site shuts down entirely they will change the name to "after sunset".

Or they'll get on the ball; it IS vacation season *shrug*
