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.
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.
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.
Try it! Use this link to find out how to get to the White House.
If you are anything like me, you watch the Superbowl for the commercials… with football in between. Luckily in case you are going to miss work, or just don’t want to wade through the Superbowl and wait for the commericials, you can watch them here http://dyn.ifilm.com/superbowlads/ Ifilm will post them as they appear in order on this website. Thanks Internet.
I was thinking today. Why does February only have 28 days? I mean it honestly doesn’t make sense. Sure it gets the extra day during a leap year because it’s the most deprived month. Realistically, every month could have 30 days. 360/12=30 . So then there would be 5 extra days hanging around. Who decides where these months go? Well I would say that May-August should get the extra days because everyone loves Summer break, and December rightfully gets 31 days because it has to handle the holidays. But sadly this isn’t the case. If we were to be fair and give five months one extra day, then there are still two months hogging days from February. Who are the culprits? Well obviously I think October is one of them. I hate October with a passion. Halloween can be on October 30th, and that settles that case. January is also another day stealer. Who wants to be cold for 31 days? What does anyone like about January? NOTHING! So… March I have no quarrels with you my good month, but January and October need to hand over their 31st day to poor February. After this is done, February can still have the extra leap day.
Yes folks, WyomingJarbo.com , your portal to everything that is awesome is back on the saddle of the Internet once again. The site content is poor right now, I know. But expect several unreleased videos (including a few that are on the WyomingJarbo: Volume One DVD) and more. If you have any suggestions for what you want to see on the site, let me know. May WyomingJarbo.com have a good 2005.
