Stupid Google Tricks


Recommended Posts

We all know you can Google for "greatest hosting service"

Most of us know you can do "greatest +budget hosting -Windows" to refine it.

 

Did you know you can "35 miles in feet"?

How about "weather Key West, Fl"

Or "define:is"

Or "movie:The Highlander"

 

Find these and more at the Google advanced operators cheat sheet.

Too true. I knew about all of these.

 

My favorite is the Google calculator. I have a google search box integrated into my Start Menu (Google Deskbar), and whenever I need to run a calculation, I just type in my numbers and hit enter. Very cool. It even does complex math like sine, cosine, etc.

 

And I also like to do:

 

35 degrees C in F so I can figure out how hot it is in cities that use the celsius system.

My favorite is phone number lookup.

First name Last Name city or state

 

Or reverse lookup. You type in the phone number (with area code) and you get the name/address.

But what's the question?

 

By the way, I just found out that I share the same birthday with Douglas Adams - maybe that's why I love his books so much!

 

Brain the size of a planet...
