Good to Know Answers: How to whistle loudly with two fingers

16 08 2007


We have two segments being introduced in one post. one is “good to know” as in, stuff that is good to know, and the other is “answers” as in, well, you get it.

In case you were wondering, a really old post on google answers yielded a pretty darn good guide on how to whistle loudly with two fingers like they do in the movies or at baseball games. There are several instances in which this little trick would come in handy for me.

Group your searches with the Clusty search engine

10 08 2007


The amazing search engine Clusty groups your search results so you can refine your search topic and find exactly what you need. It queries top search engines, ranks them with style, searches wikipedia, blogs, images, news, .gov, jobs, labs, and a few other things that really make it sensational.

“What really makes Clusty unique is what happens after you search. Instead of delivering millions of search results in one long list, our search engine groups similar results together into clusters. Clusters help you see your search results by topic so you can zero in on exactly what you’re looking for or discover unexpected relationships between items. When was the last time you went to the third or fourth page of the search results? Rather than scrolling through page after page, the clusters help you find results you may have missed or that were buried deep in the ranked list. “

After trying it out as default for a few days, I Can’t say enough about how truly awesome this search engine is, (not to mention their no-nonsense privacy policy) and for me at least, it’s a Google-beater.

But enough of my blabbing! try it out!

Intelways comprehensive web-based toolbar

28 07 2007

Intelways.com gives you a search bar that stays at the top of the page, that will easily let you search hundreds of websites using a huge number of search engines. You can even search places like StumbleUpon or Digg right alongside Google. The search services are organized into different categories that make it even easier to browse for something new or find something. The site explains:

“Intelways is a web search aggregator, a place for people to find almost anything on the internet in different formats, topics and media types, by retrieving results from multiple search engines and online information providers. From the biggest search engines to the most deep web databases, Intelways allows our users to easily find what they’re looking for.”

the site is insanely comprehensive, and I use it as my homepage, the only quip I have is that you don’t actually navigate away from the website, like a proxy, but if you want to bookmark the page or something, just open it in a new window. I suspect future versions to have a “open in new tab” option.
