Google just doesn’t stop delivering the goods. New features I discovered recently and would like to share: unit conversions and updated toolbar.
Did you know you can type in your conversion right into the search box and Google will return the answer instead of searching for pages. Some examples would be
- 50 * 73
- 40 celsius in Fahrenheit
- 90 kilograms in stones
- 5 square inches in square centimeters
- (G * mass of earth) / (radius of earth ^ 2)
- half a cup in teaspoons
In addition to the previous functionality of searching without going to Google page and highlighting the toolbar provides pop-up blocking, auto filling of forms.
Get it here!
Full list of Google features
Update August 10th, 2005
Google recently added currency conversion to their serch. As always with Google the feature is very intuitive. Try any of the following:
73 british pounds in euros
430 USD in SEK
What a bad start to the day. I saw a 70+ year old camel toe on my way to work.
Makes me wonder; is the camel toe wearing person not aware of the “fashion” feature or is it intentional? I would guess the former for an elderly person and the later for a younger female.
Personal note: what is the name for the male version of a camel toe?
A tale about the classical themes of greed and jelousy. This time in the shape of two brothers that are struggling to make it one day at a time.
The older brother (Lincoln) is working at an arcade, pretending to be Abraham Lincoln. His younger brother (Booth) is a hustler.
The acting and costumes were top notch. The street lingo was hard to understand at times. The perfomance is 2:15 long and performed at Royal Court, Sloane Square, London (UK).
Here is a more thorough review.
I was surprised to see one of the actors, Mos Def, in the block buster movie Italian Job. Great performance!
Gee, what a disappointment. Arnold is old and not properly pumped, no Sarah Connor present and weak lead actors just to mention a few of the fallbacks. Still, the flick has some attractions for an old Terminator fan.
It is the most humorous Terminator of the three and all the lead actors manage to be funny.
Catch the movie because of the stunning effects but be warned about the weak plot.
How about a flat, skinny, 43″, high-resolution TV? If this is your vice then a plasma TV is your medicine.

Have added photos from our recent trip to Malaysia.
Tanjung Rhu, Lengkawi island, was like a paradise…
The staff was wonderful and always wearing a smile, greeting us at every opportunity.
If you are the active type, there are plenty of activities to enjoy in between your beach sessions. Choose between kayaking, katamaran sailing, tennis, golf, market visits, eagle feeding and loads more. Some complementary, some not.
Having 4 restaurants in your viscinity meant that every evening meal was a feast. I can definitely recommend the all-inclusive option because otherwise the costs do sum up during a long day.
for long summer evenings
for good value sushi deliveries
for strong Scotch
for Appetite for Destruction
and for good friends
Dark Spada IV was the most exciting I could come up for my name.
How about you? Anagrams Tool
They look nice, they smell less nice and they taste nothing like pineapple. Still a good source of sugar and fat so they will do for this afternoon.
Interested in getting hold of some? Just around the corner, Lengkawi Airport, Malaysia.
Just in case you don’t know, the weather is fantastic in London. Even when enjoyed from inside an AC office.
