GoodGuide App Easter Egg

| Comments

It has been long enough since I worked at GoodGuide that I think I can post this now :)

While developing the GoodGuide iPhone app, my partner on the development team was from Stanford. I went to Cal. For those of you that don’t know, Cal and Stanford are bitter rivals. There was a bet taken on the big game (football) the year the app was initially developed, and the Stanford alum ended up having to wear a Cal shirt to the office when his team lost. A picture was taken and immortalized as an easter egg in the app.

If you download the free GoodGuide app, search for “stanfurd sucks” exactly, complete with all lowercase letters, and the misspelling of Stanford, you will see an amusing easter egg. Enjoy :)


My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for the web, iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), and MacOS out of New York City. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. In 2019, I joined the team at Ticket Evolution as a Senior Software Engineer. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley and a MBA from Quantic. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our dog Hamachi. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
