Try This: Google For “Tilt” On Your iPhone

Tilt

This is all over Twitter today.

Grab your iThing, open Safari, and use the Google search box to search for “tilt”.

Your search results are… tilted.

Is this an easter egg? An April Fools gag that someone forgot to switch off?

    Nope sorry “iThing” is to broad a term as my iPad 2 does not tilt when looking up tilt in google.

    Looks like a nifty css trick:
    -webkit-transform: rotate(1deg);

  • HammyHavoc

    I wasn’t aware of it and found it interesting as somebody who tinkers with CSS on a daily basis.
