It’s that time of the year again when you get presents and have the opportunity to stuff your faces with food you would probably never eat otherwise. So whatever you are up to and whatever your beliefs, Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from me.
Also if you have children want something fun to look at then Google have put a GPS tracking device on Father Christmas sleigh so you can follow him as he delivers presents all around the world.
From: google.co.uk/santatracker/about: “On Christmas Eve, we’ll be proudly showcasing a preview of Santa’s dashboard – the technology that powers his sleigh during his round-the-world journey. We’ve received this special preview from one of Santa’s many developer elves, who are hard at work in the North Pole helping Santa prepare for his big day. Santa’s dashboard – featuring the latest and greatest in Google Maps technology and sleigh engineering – will allow you to follow his progress around the world and also learn a little about some of his stops along the way.”
“Our friendly elves have also invited you to explore Santa’s village whilst Santa gets ready for his journey. So go ahead and explore his village, you might just find some fun activities and meet some interesting elves.”
So far he has delivered 620,473,916 presents and traveled 94,681 km which mighty impressive for an old fat man. I don’t think he giving everyone a present just carpet bombing them as he flies past so presents are on a first-come, first-served basis I am afraid. I like how he leaves status updates such as “Holding on to his hat!” but mostly I just like looking at all the stats.
Theres other games and fun stuff on the site too.
