Tech that!

CNBC-TV18 has a tech show, which has a segment called Off The Web. The host was providing advice on how to use Google better.

Here are some samples:

Finding what acronyms stand for.

If you want to find what, for iinstance, LLB stands for, he recommends using the following syntax on Google.

LLB stands +for

That's hardly elegant. A better way would be to use the define syntax: define:llb

To research history, he recommends, using the following syntax:

intitle:history inurl:help

Again, not a very helpful tip. Because what you will end up getting is the help sections of sites on history.
