A search engine can be a nifty tool. Besides directing you to websites that can give you answers about people, places, and things, a search engine can also answer quick questions for you.
For example, get the definition of an unfamiliar word by just typing it in.
Aren’t sure how to spell a word? Just ask.
Need help figuring planning a drive? Get a distance and driving directions just by asking.
Not sure when meat is safe to eat? Just ask.
Need to convert money? Just type it in.
How about a phone number for a local business?
Metric conversion is also simple.
Or a quick translation of a word or phrase.
Try checking movie showtimes.
Or check a score.
Google can also give you a calorie count for your dinner.
And just for fun, type “zerg rush” into the Google search box and hit the magnifying glass. Watch to see what happens.
There’s still a lot more Google and other search engines can do for you. Just try typing in a question and see what happens.
