Google Offers Up Tribute To Atari Breakout
Visitors to Utah's Lagoon amusement park might not realize it, but the humble amusement park in Farmington spawned one of the famous of technology companies ever: Atari. Atari's co-founder, Nolan Bushnell, came up with the idea for the videogame company having worked for many years in high school and college in Ogden. Google put up its own tribute to Atari Tuesday, letting users play its own version of Atari Breakout by typing in a special query on Google Image Search. Tuesday was the 37th anniversary of the release of Atari Breakout. Users who type in "atari breakout" on Google Image Search can play a version of the videogame directly from their browser.
