How to Restrict Your Search to Specific File Types

123a.jpg



Google can let you restrict your searches to only certain file types. This can be very helpful if you're looking specifically for file types, such as PowerPoint, (ppt) Word, (doc) or Adobe PDF.
To restrict your search to a specific file type, use the filetype: command. For example, try searching for:

hotel filetype:ppt





How to Restrict Your Google Search to Specific Domains or Specific Countries

123a.jpg


Most Web sites have a .com domain name. Sometimes it's better to restrict your searches to other domains, such as .edu or .net.
One great example of this is if you are looking for information about textbooks, but you didn't want to buy a textbook. An unrestricted Google search would mostly yield results from Web sites selling textbooks. One way to avoid this problem is to restrict your search to indian universities. To do this, you'd search for:

site:edu textbook
You can use this to restrict searches are to US government sites site:gov, or only specific countries site:in.




How to Use Google's Hidden Calculator

Calculate, Measure, Convert, and More


Not only can you search the Web with Google, you can use it as a calculator. Google's calculator is more than an ordinary number cruncher. It can calculate both basic and advanced math problems, and it can convert measurements as it calculates. You don't even need to restrict yourself to numbers. Google can understand many words and abbreviations and evaluate those expressions, too.
Google's calculator was designed to solve problems without a lot of math syntax, so you may occasionally find calculator results when you didn't even realize you were searching for the answer to a math equation.

To use Google's calculator, simply to go to Google's search engine and type in whatever you'd like to be calculated. For instance, you could type:

3+3
and Google will return the result 3+3=6. You can also type in words and get results. Type in
three plus three
and Google will return the result three plus three=six.
You know your results are from Google's calculator when you see the picture of the calculator to the left of the result.

Complex Math

Google can calculate more complex problems such as two to the twentieth power,

2^20
the square root of 287,
sqrt(287)
or the sine of 30 degrees.
sine(30 degrees)
You can even find the number of possible groups in a set. For instance,
24 choose 7
finds the number of possible choices of 7 items from a group of 24 items.
Convert and Measure

Google can calculate and convert many common measurements, so you could find out how many ounces are in a cup.

oz in a cup
Google's results reveal that 1 US cup = 8 US fluid ounces. You can use this to convert just about any measurement to any other compatible measurement.
12 parsecs in feet
[blockquote shade= yes]37 degrees kelvin in Fahrenheit
You can also calculate and convert in one step. Find out how many ounces you have when you have 28 times two cups.

28*2 cups in oz
Google says that 28 * 2 US cups = 448 US fluid ounces. Remember, because this is a computer based calculator, you must multiply with the * symbol, not an X.
Google recognizes most common measurements, including weight, distance, time, mass, energy, and monetary currency.

Math Syntax

Google's calculator is designed to calculate problems without a lot of complicated math formatting, but sometimes it's easier and more accurate to use some math syntax. For instance, if you want to evaluate an equation that looks like a phone number,

1-555-555-1234
Google will probably confuse this with its hidden phonebook. You can force Google to evaluate an expression by using an equal sign.
1-555-555-1234=
This only works for problems that are mathematically possible to resolve. You can't divide by zero with or without an equal sign.
You can force parts of an equation to be resolved before other parts by enclosing them in parenthesis.

(3+5)*9
Some other math syntax Google recognizes:

+ for addition
- for subtraction
* for multiplication
/ for division
^ for exponential (x to the power of y)
% for modulo (to find the remainder after division)
choose X choose Y fines the number of possible subset groups of Y out of the set of X.
th root of creates the nth root of a number
% of finds percentages X % of Y finds X percent of Y.
sqrt finds the square root of the number that follows
ln logarithm base e
log logarithm base 10
lg logarithm base 2
! factorial - This must follow the number you wish to factor.
If you appreciate a more visual interface, you can use Soople's Advanced Calculator, which uses Google's engine to calculate.

Google's calculator isn't completely documented, so it may take some experimenting to find all of the hidden features.

The next time you find yourself wondering how much five liters is in gallons, rather than searching for a Web site for conversion, just use Google's hidden calculator.




How to Get Local Weather Forcasts in Google

123a.jpg




To find a quick local weather forecast in INDIA with Google, simply type weather followed by a city and state or a zip code. For example, to find the weather in Eldorado, Texas, search for
weather MUMBAI
You don't need to add commas between city and state, and you don't need to capitalize any names. You'll see a short listing of the local weather followed by relevant search results.

Note: Google is not forgiving with the spelling of city names when you use this shortcut.

How to Use Google as a Dictionary

123a.jpg



You may notice occasionally when you're searching for a word, Google will offer a link to Web definitions of your word. This is part of Google's hidden dictionary, a search of definitions on the Web.
Say you'd like to find out what a "clew" is. You could search for define clew, and most of the search results would have some sort of definition. However, this is really just a keyword search, so some of the results might be long articles on clews or only mention the definition in passing.

Define: Your Terms

If you're really only interested in finding a quick dictionary style definition of clew, use the syntax define:. The search in this case would be define: clew. From that search, we can instantly see that a clew is the lower corner of a boat sail.

The information is coming from a variety of dictionary related Web sites, and there's a link to the full entry for each Web site. Google also provides links to related searches, such as "clew bay."

What If You Can't Spell?

If you aren't the best speller or you make a typo, don't worry. Google will still suggest an alternate search, just as it does for regular Web searches. If we type in define: cliw, Google helpfully asks "Did you mean: define: clew."

How to Find Local Movie Showtimes With Google

123a.jpg



Rather than going to a Web site that lists local movies and showtimes, you can find out when a theater near you is playing a movie in one quick and easy step in Google.
The syntax for this is movie: followed by the movie name and your city name and state or zip code. Do put spaces in between the words. Capitalization doesn't matter. For instance, you could find local listings of 3 idiots in Mumbai by searching for:

movie: 3 idiots, Mumbai

Note: Google is not forgiving with the spelling of movie names. You must spell the movie exactly the way it appears, although you can leave off words Google usually ignores, such as "a" or "the."

Not only does Google list showtimes in theaters near that location, if there are any, it also shows you average movie reviews. You can click on the rating to the left to see more specific reviews pulled from various professional review sources.
Click on the map link next to a movie theater to open Google Maps and find driving directions to the movie. Click on the name of the theater to see all movies that are playing at that theater, plus reviews of those movies.

Next time you want to see a movie, just use Google and find out when your movie is playing, whether it's worth seeing, and what else is playing instead. It's faster than finding listings in the newspaper.

Use Google as Your Phonebook (Work for US only)

Google's phonebook can find US public business and residential numbers, and it can find them with less information than you need to look through the paper phonebook.
Google's phonebook is hiding within Google. Occasionally, phone numbers will appear in the search results page, depending on the keywords you type into the search box.

To access the phonebook directly, type phonebook: before your search. This opens up Google's residential phonebook.

You can find someone's phone number, but you do have to give Google a little information. For personal numbers, you generally need at least a last name and a state. To find all the Kaushal Kishore in US, for example, type phonebook:Kaushal Kishore. That's a lot of Kaushal Kishore, and probably not very useful to find a specific Kaushal Kishore. If you know more information, such as the city you're looking for or the full name, type that in too.

Limitations

Google's phonebook can only find public phone numbers. It can't find cell numbers. Quite often the numbers are outdated. I found two outdated phone numbers for a relative of mine, and his current phone number wasn't listed at all, even though it is public.

Reverse Lookup

Say you have a phone number and you want to find out who's number it is, such as from a message left on your cell phone. To do a reverse lookup, simply type the phone number into the main Google search engine, including the area code. Type using the format 555-555-5555 for best results. Google will still find the phone number if you use parenthesis around the area code, but you may also find some irrelevant results.

Remember, Google's phonebook doesn't contain any cell phone data.

When Google does find the name and address matching a phone number, it will also give you an handy link to Google Maps to get driving directions to that address.

This might look like a tool designed for stalkers, but Google is just putting together information already available from local phone directories and Internet phonebook searches. If you don't want Google to list your name and number, you can search for your own phone number and click on the "Request to have your name removed from this list" link in the search results. This will not remove your name from other Internet directories or phonebooks.

Find Business Phone Numbers

Business phone numbers appear within Google search results, but they aren't as easy to access from the phonebook. The quickest way to find business phone numbers in Google is to search with Google Maps.

Did you ever notice ridges on F and J key of keyboard

Untitled.jpg





Question

On my laptops keyboard (QWERTY) there are some ridges on the F and J buttons, what are they for?



Answer

People who touch-type (type without looking) use these two ridges to determine the position of their fingers on the keyboard. Touch typists put the index finger of their left hand on F and the index finger of their right hand on J before they type so they know where their fingers are at.
