Google's New Crossword-Style Trivia Game Wants Puzzlers to Search

Fellow puzzle fans, Google has brought us joy.

Chrome OS Puzzle-Solver Scores a New Google Cr-48 Laptop

Google loves to make people solve puzzles. The company often posts them in obvious places for all the world to see, so it was a bit of a surprise when Sylvain Zimmer, and a few of his co-workers at music site Jamendo, spotted an equation hiding in the background of one of the new Chrome OS marketing videos.

While the older program only worked on simple "cartoon-style" drawings with a...

Teen's Rubik's Cube Robot Solves Classic Puzzle

Lazy and inept gamers (with sophisticated programming and engineering skills, of course), have previously created robots and programs capable of solving 'Super Mario Bros.' and Sudoku puzzles. Now, Lithuanian high school senior Andrius Sutas, incorporating a "layer-by-layer" algorithm, has apparently constructed a robot that can successfully solve that classic king of frustration: the Rubik's...
