Welcome to PC Wiz Kid’s Tech Talk, today I wanted to show you some Google Tricks. The first one is called Define, it’s like a dictionary if you type define in the search filled and then colon and then the word like computer and then hit enter we will get a whole bunch of definitions for the word computers. So, if you don’t have a dictionary handy you can look it up on the web and get all the official descriptions here and the meanings for a word in this case computer. The other neat little trick is using the Google Calculator, so in the search filled you can put in the formula for example. So if you don’t have a calculator handy and you know a formula so 2 power 10+7*98+500% so you can type whatever you want in here a valid formula and after that click the Google search and then you will get the results so just like the calculator where you go, it knows exactly what you type in and there is the answer so you need little calculator check there if you need it. Also you can use the calculator to do conversions, so let’s just say that you are going on a trip to London, England and you’ve got a whole bunch of US dollars to convert into pounds. So if you type USD or US Dollar space in pounds and there are search and Google it automatically tells us your thing. One US dollar equals this much British pounds okay. Similarity if you are going to a trip to Mexico it use Peso down there so we just type Peso to search there you go one US Dollar it gives you 10.3 Pesos. You can rather conversions as well not just monetary conversions so kilograms to pounds mainly doing some calculations for that. So how much is one kilogram in pounds well its 2.2 pounds, so how much would be 5 kilograms in pounds will I just type 5kg to lb the pounds there and then there you go that’s how much it is. So it’s pretty straight forward, it’s easy to use and you can type in like seconds in a week, how many seconds in a week or how many seconds in a year so that’s how many seconds in a week, let’s type in year instead and here you go that’s how many seconds in a year so can use this for any calculations if you have anything to do like that for example. Now, if you want to find out what’s the time in other areas of the world quickly, you can just type in time space and then the City name for example. So in the search field again type in what time is in New York for example and then hit the Google search and there is your time in New York alright. That’s the long way of typing it in, what time is it in New York or time is in London that’s the way to specifically tell it what you are looking for but there is also the other ways you can type and sure the abbreviations like time space London, time space New York. Similar if you are looking for a movie, you want to find out movie show times, Hancock just came out recently you got your postal code so type in Hancock space postal code there and then you get the show times for that post code so that postal code 10023 for New York and there is the theaters in that postal code area. So, there is a show time feature in Google and there is an airline flight status, so if you know an airline so for example that I know that there is an American Airlines flight 47 going on and I just type in American space flight 47 and it instantly doesn’t look up to find out what’s going on with that flight. So, I hit the search here and it tells me okay that’s the flight going from Chicago to Dallas and its on time it’s on schedule it says it left at 7:30 and it will arrive around 9:44 so there you go a quick way of getting flights stats without having to go any turning website all through Google. And then one is searching by site type, so let’s jus say you want to know about Space Trouble and you don’t want every type of search results. You just want educational institutions such as Universities. So you type in space trouble site colon edu and every search result ends with the edu because that’s from an educational institution right like a University. If you wanted to be a government site then you type gov and then of course there is a mass with that gov. you can tell here that all the search results are dot gov okay. If you wanted to change that to org like an organization then just type org do a search and of course Wikipedia is the most popular org type website for finding information. So there you go there is a search results in every other search results is also an org. So last but not less finding music okay, if you wanted to find specific type of music online quickly you can typing this long bunch of parameters here and then the title of the song or group or the bond or whatever that you want to search for. Okay, so this is the long string here that you need to type in the search field and then you hit enter and it will search and bring up a listing like a directory listing on the server on different websites where that title that you put in there at the very end could be in. so, right this down exactly what I have here pause the screen if you need to and just remember the only thing you need to modify is this last piece here so I put Nirvana because I like Nirvana just for the sake for argument. Let just see what we can find and I found the site here, the first result if I just click on that website is just the directory listing actually that has a whole bunch different folders and files with MP3’s on them actually. So, course if this are commercial MP3’s I don’t endorse you to go ahead and download a copyrighted music but it’s a neat little thing that made people don’t know about. So, I hope you enjoy the video and thank you for watching.
