20 ways Google can make your life easier

Written By kom nampultig on Rabu, 15 April 2015 | 08.20

1.

Find flight details

When you type in a flight number (eg: 6E 322, for Indigo 322 from Guwahati to Mumbai via Kolkata), Google will instantly tell you what time it left the origin, expected arrival time and other info like terminalgate (if available). Check this when you're going to receive someone at the airport.

2.

Book hotels

Type in any hotel name and city to see a list of competitive room rates and ratings. You can click through to read reviews and if you know which hotel you want, proceed straight to checking the availability and booking your room.

3.

Convert anything

The conversion engine is powerful. If you need instant currency conversions with the latest market rates, just type it. For instance, you can type 550 GBP to INR for Pounds to Indian Rupees. Or $100 to INR for US Dollars. If you don't know the currency code, you can also get results by typing 100 US dollars to Indian Rupees. The same works for all sorts of unit conversions too (sq. feet, kms, inches, miles and so on).

4.

Compare nutrition information

Weight watchers need to count calories and you can use Google to compare the calorific value of different foods. For instance, type hamburger vs spaghetti to get an instant comparison table on calories, carbs and vitamins for a specific amount of food.

5.

Set a timer

Use the words 'set a timer for' or 'timer 10 minutes' to instantly set a timer within the browser. You can maximise the page for a full screen timer with large fonts (to be read across a room) or minimise the browser and keep working - it will beep once over.

6.

Instant language translations

Google Translate offers lots of functionality, but if you only need a quick word or phrase translated, just use normal language to ask 'can you help me in French'. Not only does it show you the text translation but also shows you how to speak it.

7.

Etymology

This is the study of words and their origin. Trivia nerds can just type etymology followed by the word that they need info for. You'll get phonetics, meaning, origin, history, usage over time and the option to translate it into various languages.

8.

Play a quick game

Type zerg rush into the search bar for a quick game. A swarm of O's will come and attack the search results and you have to click on them to 'kill' them. In Google image search, type Atari breakout and play using the left-right keys.

9.

A bit of fun

Type 'tilt' & search to see what happens. Or type 'do a barrel roll'. Star Trek fans will enjoy Google Klingon and for a quick look at some of Google's wacky extras, head to http:www.elgoog.im (I'm Google in reverse) - although the site is not really affiliated with Google. Here, you can see some of the classics like the snake game doodle, a playable Pac Man, the Les Paul playable guitar and gravity effects.

10.

Revisit any doodle

Some of the doodles that Google creates for its home page are truly spectacular. You can access all past doodles (even the country-specific ones) by heading to http:www.google.comdoodles.

11.

Check updated scores for a game

To get scores for ongoing sporting events, search for the team name followed by 'score'. It will also give you a quick look at the overall schedule of the team.

12.

Get weather for any city

You can get a quick weather report (including a week's forecast) for any city in the world by typing weather followed by the city name. Similarly you can also get the sunrise sunset time of a city by typing Sunrise or Sunset before the city name.

13.

Movie release dates

Add 'release date' in front of a movie name to find out when it is hitting the theatres in the US. If you want the release date for a specific country, add the country name after the movie name (release date Avengers 2 India).You can also search for movie show times near you by typing 'movie' followed by city name.

14.

Information on any authoractor

If you want to know about a particular actor, author, director or other celebrity, search for their full name in Google. Google collates a lot of info on them to show you everything at a glance.

15.

Definitions of any word

Type 'Define' followed by the word in the search bar. Google will show the meaning of the word along with synonyms as well as an audio clip on how the word is to be pronounced.

16.

Calculate the exact tip

Search for 'Tip Calculator' to bring up a box for this - it also calculates tip per person. Note that this is in USD though it hardly matters when calculating the tip as a percentage.

17.

Get TV episode information

Quite like with movies, when you search for a TV show by name, it will display information about the cast, director as well as an episode list for quick reference. Note that this only works for TV shows that are currently being aired in the US.

18.

Find local businesses near you ­

You can search for specific businesses in any location. Search for the type of business and location to see results with map location. If you do not mention a specific location, Google will automatically show the business places around your current location.

19.

Let me Google that for you

When someone asks you something simple (and they should have just Googled in the first place), head to http:www.lmgtfy.com (the URL is the abbreviated form of 'let me google that for you'). Type in a search wordphrase and the site will create a URL for you to share with that person. Share the URL for some fun. The site is not affiliated with Google, even though it lets you search normally.

20.

Get detailed stock updates

Type in 'stock' followed by the name of any listed company to view an up-to-date graph on how the company is performing in NASDAQ. It also shows you a trend graph for 1 day, 1 month or even 5 years.

MF Simplified: The benefits of staying invested

If you are planning to invest you money into the market, or have already invested with a goal to achieve capital appreciation, staying invested makes more sense than moving in and out of the market. Every good financial advisor preaches and practices the mantra - "time in the market is more important than timing the market".

A lot of investors make the mistake of abandoning their financial plans at the first sign of bad news. Instead, one would do well to take a macro perspective and realize that over the years, bull markets have lasted longer than bear markets. It is also interesting to note that on most occasions, the upward rallies have easily made up for short-term declines.

More Reasons for Staying Invested:

· Sense of Discipline: Staying true to your financial plan inculcates a sense of discipline towards long-term goals. Regular investing is probably one of the most critical aspects for wealth-creation.

· Benefits from Compounding: The mathematical reason for staying invested was well articulated by Albert Einstein, who said, "Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it ... he who doesn't ... pays it." Give your money the time to grow. Let it work as hard as you do.

· Benefits from a Full Market Cycle: Understanding the markets is easy, timing them isn't. We do know that markets tend to follow a cycle of ups and downs and bulls and bears. Staying invested allows you to participate in the rallies. This is an opportunity to buy low and sell high because in the long-term, the good schemes have always delivered positive returns.

· Leverage Long-Term Strategies: When you agree to stay invested for a longer duration, you give yourself the opportunity to benefit from the long-term strategy and vision of an experienced money manager or mutual fund manager.

· Tax Benefits: Long-term capital gains arising on the transfer of units of an 'equity oriented' mutual fund is exempt from income tax. Moreover, investments in Equity Linked Saving Schemes from mutual fund houses are exempt u/s 80/C of the IT Act.

The MF Route to Long-Term Investments

A dynamically managed mutual fund is one of the best investment vehicles for retail investors looking to gain from long-term investments. An Asset Management Company offers various schemes that pursue different objectives. These schemes are actively managed by experienced fund managers who follow a well-defined investment style and proven processes.

Systematic Investment Plan is the best mode of long-term investment for a retail investor. An SIP allows you to make the most of a bearish market as you gain from rupee cost averaging.

It is all about the Mindset

Staying invested and periodically reviewing your financial plan has proven to be one of the surest ways of creating long-term wealth. When investing in uncertain times, following the basics is the best way forward.

When the outlook is pessimistic, it is natural to be worried about ones hard-earned money. Wharton professor Jeremy Siegel once said, "Volatility scares enough people out of the market to generate superior returns for those who stay in!"

Many will ignore that advice. However, the fact about the market is that it is impossible to predict when a bull market will begin. If you stay invested, you never miss the party and usually reap good returns. It is better than missing out by waiting on the sidelines.

Blog: Gen Singh, we're proud of your Yemen job

Former army chief, Gen VK Singh (Retd) continues to have a love-hate relationship with the media. The combative soldier, now a minister of state in the external affairs ministry, came home last week after a hugely successful mission to evacuate Indians from a war-torn Yemen.

Irrespective of how the national media treated the evacuation mission done under his leadership, by all available bits, Gen Singh did a remarkable job. Then what explains this strange relationship with the media, some of who he referred to as 'presstitutes'?

We all know that the general wears his emotions on his sleeves, which is not a bad thing, but for someone in a position that he is, it can prove to be a disadvantage, especially if there are those who want to misinterpret what he says. But, has the media really been fair to him?

Let us look at the time he attended the reception at the Pakistan High Commission last month for their national day celebrations, the one which started this newest bout of acrimony with the media. First of all, I think it was a wrong call on part of the government to send him, so what if he is a minister and was duty bound to go, for THAT function. He is after all an army man, and all know the relationship we have with Pakistan, especially the fact that their army is openly hostile, foments trouble in India, even as our politically controlled response is invariably a measured one. At a time like that, when the general reacts, the media's response should've borne in mind the sensitivity, but we chose to sensationalize instead.

Then came the incident in Yemen, where he said that evacuating Indians from Yemen was less exciting than going to the Pak embassy. Let's be fair, it was a sarcastic comment, perhaps a dig at some of us too, but it was just that, and no more. I am sure he was still smarting under the undue chatter that accompanied his Pakistan High Commission visit. But our media raked it up, totally unnecessarily. Should the general, now that he is a minister, have been mindful of what he said, and to make it worse, followed it up by calling some in the media 'presstitutes'? He shouldn't have! It appeared flippant' Having said that though, we too perhaps need to accept things in the spirit that they are said and not latch on to every word just because we may have a score to settle.

We are proud how the general marshaled the evacuation process in Yemen. It demanded precision and planning that only a top notch army man could have managed. Full marks to the government for deputing him for the job.

And before I end, do take a look at how the foreign media covered India's operation Rahat (rescue). It's almost gushing in praise. Let us give the man, and the team he marshaled, their due too.

How BBC saw operation Rahat

How CNN saw operation Rahat
