GOOGLE BEYOND WHAT YOU SEE

GOOGLE BEYOND WHAT YOU SEE

In its short existence, Google has changed the way we do everything on the Internet. For some people, Google is their gateway to the entire Web: they even type out website names and go to the site by clicking on the search result! But there is much more to Google. Let us look at a few more things that Google can do.

  1. MEANINGS: For word or phrase meanings, use the string ‘define’. Type ‘define personality’, press enter, and you will get not just the word and meaning, but even the pronunciation, usage and an audio link to hear the word pronounced.
  2. FLIGHT INFORMATION: Want to find out if your flight is on time? Type the name of the carrier, and the flight number with the carrier code, for instance SG 231 for a Spicejet flight, and press enter. Voila! You know if the flight on time, where it is flying to, and from where, etc.
  3. DATA CONVERSION: In school we learnt to convert miles into kilometers, and ounces into grams and all sorts of other confusing data. Is it not simpler to just type ‘86 inches into cm’ and press enter? Or ‘86 USD into INR’, or ’86 degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius’… Anything. And you thought Google was just a search engine.
