The Calculating Google Search Engine
We've Come a Long Way, Baby!
I like to use Google for doing metric conversions. In fact, it's not only great for metric conversions, but also currency conversions and as a calculator. It really is a "hidden" feature of Google many people don't know about. Just go to http://www.google.com and try typing these in and click "Search":
For unit conversion:
5 lbs in kg
8 fluid ounces in liters
For currency conversions:
1 us dollar in thai baht
7 euros in dollars
8 * 2
7 + 12
When you click "Search", Google is able to figure out (through some use of fuzzy logic, I'm sure) you want a conversion or calculation and returns this to you. Am I the only geek who thinks this is cool?Barry's Response
