    Ok, call me an idiot if you knew this but I didn't know that Google could be used as your handy dandy calculator. Enter a math function Example - (2+2)*100 in the search box.

    Totally boring if you already knew, neat if you didn't I guess.




    Edited to add - gee... Looks like they all can - Yahoo, Google, Alltheweb. Learn something new every day!

    Google has alot of built in features no one really knows about. The calculator can figure other stuff out as well, for instance, how many ounces in a gallon, how many inches in 10 feet, etc.

    I like the built in dictionary, define:word.

    You can track UPS, airline flights...i like: area code 123, as well since I get a bunch of out of state calls, I can see where they're calling from.

    Page containing all the features: http://www.google.com/help/features.html

    I find just about everything useful about Google, except for their actual search engine.

    WOW I must be stupid too

    I never knew any of that. It's really cool. The number of times I can't find my calculator and there was one staring me in the face.
