Google's Search About Number Of Results Easter Egg

This is not new, I actually covered it at Search Engine Land a year ago but never here and I think some of my more geekier readers will enjoy it if they have not seen it. Search Google for [hex], [binary], [octal] and [hexadecimal] and you may not be surprised to see an easter egg.

The results count shows the value of such queries.

Google Results Count For Hex, Binary, Octal & Hexadecimal

As you can see, Google gets cute with the number of search results "about" figure.

Heck, since it is rarely right anyway, why not?
