Search Engine Tools for Ready Reference

Google's got a couple of ready-reference tools. The first is a calculator. It works very simply: enter your calculation and Google will spit out the results. For example, you might enter, without quotes, one billion divided by fifty-nine. (Don't use caps when you're using this feature, either; Google doesn't like that.) Google will include the result at the top of the regular search results (in this case, 16,94,152.5). In addition to calculator functions, the Google calculator also does conversions (miles to inches, ounces to quarts, etc.).

TIP

If you have a hard time remembering all of Google's various search offerings, try Soople (http://www.soople.com). It offers dozens of different interfaces to Google's search tools; there's a whole page just for the calculator!
