Although we're quickly approaching New Year's Day, thanks to Igor Skochinsky of the Reversing Everything blog all Kindle owners can celebrate a few Easter Eggs. If you're not aware, Easter Eggs are the little hidden treats programmers bury in their code. Just about every operating system and application has a few tucked away, waiting to be discovered.
You can see the details in this post on Igor's blog. The biggest treat is the GPS function which can be used to show your current location as well as nearby restaurants and gas stations, all using Google's mapping application. So now you can tell your friends you didn't just buy an e-book reader...it's also the world's largest (monochrome) GPS device! Seriously, that's a nice feature to get as an added bonus.
Igor also provides details on a picture viewer, assorted keyboard shortcuts as well as access to the greatest time-waster of all, Minesweeper.
