I keep finding new things that Google does that just knocks my socks off... So this is a did you know with some of the pretty cool things I've found:
1 - Math: If you can't find your calculator, you can just type the problem into Google and it will spit out the answer. (not sure if it works for complex algebra type problems, but it will do most simple calculator functions)
2 - Unit Conversion: When you want to find out how many liters in a gallon... ounces in a cup... inches in a meter... Celsius to Fahrenheit? just type it into google. I find myself using the # L = ? Gallons searches. (It will also do monetary conversions!)
3 - Dictionary: "define ______" will spit out the dictionary definition of a word
4 - Package Tracking: Put your Fedex, UPS or UsPS tracking code into google and it will bring back a result with the page of the tracking. So if some place sends you a tracking number and doesn't specify which way they mailed it you can still track your package.
I'm sure there are others... I've heard it does plane status... I'm wondering if it will do train status updates.

I use the unit conversion and math all the time but the dictionary and package tracking I didn't know about. That's interesting.26 gallon planted- 1 Black Angelfish, 1 Clown Pleco, Community of Ghost Shrimp
