[NTLK] Inkwell Easter Eggs (Was: iOS Einstein)

I downloaded Inklet for my Mac today and tested the "egg egg egg" secret
with my pogo stylus and magic trackpad -- and it did indeed revive the old
Rosetta easter eggs. I tried "Rosetta! Rosetta! Rosetta!" and "larryy larryy
larryy" afterwards, and both worked. That's awesome you managed to hide that
from Apple so well. Seeing the old easter eggs brought a tear to my eye.

Sorry to necropost an old topic, but I just wanted to confirm that the eggs
are still there.
