Google Power User

So, I had no idea that google was capable of so many different things. I tried out a few to see just how well the searches would go and I must say that I was impreesed. I love that I now know when I have a problem conerting feet into inches or how many quarts are in a gallon, I can just jump on Google and in seconds find my answer without having to rack mybrain. I also liked the sport search I just typed in my favorite football tem ( NYGiants) and I had a complete schedule of all thier up coming games. Now I don't have to miss the first half of a game because I didn't know what chanel or wasn't sure of the time it started. The best part is that you can use this search for every team in every sport, so if you have a household full of differemt team lovers then this is a usefull tool for you.

Goole Reader

I found that google reader takes three and four steps and simplifies them into one easy step for me. Now I no longer have to open each individual web site to see what is new. I just have to open my google reader account and everything is right in front of me. I would recommend it to anyone who visits mutiple sites everyday to see the latest happenings of each site.

New Web Sites

So I chose two different web sights for the third challenge, one being and the other being I found both to be very useful. made is easy to find resteraunts in not only my area, but in any area that I might be visiting and looking for a good place to eat. I put in Tuckerto, NJ and then narrowed my search to Italian resteraunts and within a few seconds had a listing of every Italian place within a couple miles of me. It was a lot easier to use this web site then it is to use google search or yahoo search. As for my results were the same. This site allows you to search any author or title of books and find them at a cheap price. It also allows you to search for books that are no longer being published and are difficult to find. I love reading and I'm always looking for a good bargain on books so when I saw that I could get a copy af Nicholas Sparks' book at first sight for only $.62 I was amazed. I now have a new way of buying my books!
