How To Use Google To Search

I know everyone knows how to use Google to search. I am not trying to insult whoever reading this post :P, but there are some features on Google that not everyone of us knows about. Here are some useful samples:
  1. Calculator - try enter '12 + 34 - 56 * 7 / 8' or whatever basic arithmetic in Google search box and hit search.
  2. The '-' operator to filter word from search. Example: bill gates -microsoft will search for the word Bill Gates but not the word Microsoft.
  3. The 'define:' operator provide definitions for words, phrases, and acronyms from the Web. Example: define:ipod
  4. The '..' operator search within a range of numbers. Example: Die Hard 1..4
  5. The operator 'movie' will Find reviews and showtime. Example: movie: Harry Potter
  6. The 'related:' operator list web pages that are similar or related to the URL. Example: related:www.google.com
More to learn on the Google Guide.
