Google Goes To The Movies

Google’s latest feature release includes a movie search. Think Yahoo! Movies… only… now to Google, and BETTER.

There isn’t a specific button to it. But if you type “movie:” and then your search term, you’ll find what you are looking for and more.

Type “movie:45056” and you get all listings near the Oxford area complete with show times, IMDB links, and reviews. And EVEN links to the map location (Using Google Maps). Take this Yahoo!

Type “movie:Constantine” and you’ll get the local listings for Constantine. You can even mix up the search terms a little. Say you know of a movie with a blue and red pill…. type “movie: blue and red pill” and you’ll see results for the Matrix.

Hopefully you are realizing that Google is on the ball by now… and you’re making the switch.

Unhappy Hateintines Day

I hope you are enjoying a very unfortunate unhappy Hateintines Day as you realize that everyone hates you and hopes you die. I found these special hearts just for today.

I also found a church that believes what I believe in.

Enjoy a very horrible stupid Hateintines Day…

By the way, these images were created by using the ACME heart generator,
and Ryland Sanders’ Church Sign Generator .

Answers.com

I love saying goodbye to things for better substitutes. Answers.com is quite possibly the best thing I’ve found for… well learning things. If you are unsure what a word means such as tintinnabulation you can just go to http://answers.com/tintinnabulation to find out. Very awesome. This isn’t just a dictionary. It’s also a thesaurus, encyclopedia, and more. You can search a wide variety of topics such as Strong Bad, to Super Mario. They also offer a program that you can download to your computer, that will take you automatically to a words meaning by alt-clicking on it anywhere on your computer screen. Pretty nifty. So say goodbye to m-w.com or dictionary.com… and hello to Answers.com.

Google, Where Am I?

Quite possibly the best thing to happen to online maps in a long time. Google Maps is an innovative and wonderful application debuted by Google today. It allows you to search for individual addresses, locations, and even directions. What’s great about this compared to others, is that it doesn’t download separate jpegs… it’s one big vector map, with uber quick load time that you can scroll and zoom in real time. Another awesome feature is sending someone directions with just a link, or just sending an address with a link, and then they can create directions based from where they are. Better yet, no ads at the moment since it’s in beta. So please denounce Mapquest, and give this a try.
