You can already do plenty of calculations and conversions right in Google’s search box, and it looks like the company’s now made it even smarter still. Searching for the title of an upcoming movie or video game plus “release date” will now instantly give you Google’s best guess for when the title will actually be released ( which i guess is apparently based on how often it’s been mentioned on certain websites).
Searches for movie and video game release dates are now showing what Google thinks is the best answer based on info that it finds on various websites. As you can see in the image above, just use the name of the movie or game and add “release date” to the query to get search results like this. Google shows what it thinks the release date will be and also lists the sources it used.

Google offers just so much fun things to do if you are bored of the traditional searching, what with Google doodles and various easter eggs (that we have covered before), you should take a look at the latest easter egg from the search giant. Just type ‘Zerg Rush’ in Google search box and watch the ‘O’s eat up all your ‘Zerg Rush’ search results.

It all began when i published this post and now yet again i see why google is the best at what it does. A picture is worth a thousand words.
Scenario : 31st Dec 2011 is Ending and 1st Jan 2012 is coming in
Solution. : Well, what are you waiting for ?? Just wish every person you see and their cat a “Happy New Year 2012″ .
We (both me and Latina9) would like to wish our readers a Very Happy and Productive and Digitally Secure New year and hope that the world does not end in 2012.
Remember back when you were in School, you had to deal with Functions….yeah those pesky little pipsqueaks for which you had to manually draw all those graphs.After reading this news, you will be wishing that you had this functionality back then….
So what is this exactly ?? In short, it’s a simple way to plot numerous mathematical functions and you can do it right on Google.com’s search results.
How to do it ?? Simple just go to Google.com and type in the function of your choice in the search box(You might have to write two or more sometimes). I wrote ” x^2, x*4, cos(x+1) “. Instantly, an interactive graph will pop up, complete with zoom buttons, pan options and the ability to see the x and y values for every single dot on the function’s line as can be seen in the image below. Do note that the different functions will be presented in different colors, and you can switch between them using the dropdown menu on the right.
Whether you’re a hardcore math lover, an unwilling student, or just curious to see how even mathematical functions can be fun to play with, head over to Google.com and give it a try.
Google has Done it again!!!! In the spirit of “barrel roll,” Google has another tricky search result lined up today: Search the words “let it snow” and see what happens.
The search results will contain videos of some song, but what’s that you see ? Snowflakes falling in your browser? Frost on the Google bar ? Do not Believe me ?? See the Screenshot below….
Just giving a quick Update….
Timeline is the name of the new Facebook user profile look. It was available to beta testers and developers only earlier. Interested users can now activate Timeline for their profile by going on this page on this page and clicking on “Get Timeline”, before everyone else gets a notification that it is now available to all users. It is not clear yet if all Facebook profiles will eventually be migrated to the new Timeline profile, or if this remains an option.
The profile has been revamped completely. As the name says, everything is now displayed in a timeline on the profile page. The resulting effect is eye-pleasing….atleast it felt to me….Do try it and let me know your views….
Do note though : there does not seem to be a way to go back to the old profile once Timeline has been activated. In the short scouting i did, i could not find any settings….may have overlooked it….so not sure..
