Google

Few Internet tools are as useful as Google. I don’t recall a day in recent weeks that I haven’t used it at least a few times. Whether it’s searching for a hotel in Osaka, a dive boat operator in Thailand, or red wines in South Africa, Google finds what I am looking for. It’s also helpful in finding the correct spelling of a person, place, or thing.

If you are looking for an image to use in a publication or presentation, click the Images tab and enter a name in the box. You will be surprised at what Google finds. Looking for news on a specific subject? Click the News tab and plug in the subject.

Some other search engines are good, but nothing compares to Google. It has found a permanent home at the top of my Favorites.

Tired of Spam?

I certainly am! Yes, Spam filters and other measures can be taken. However, it will never go away until the recipients of the Spam stop responding to it. It’s a fact that a sufficient number of people respond favorably to it, making the idea of sending these mass emailings an attractive option. Where there is a demand, there is a supply. So, ignore those unwanted email messages and delete them immediately. Also, do not asked to be removed from their mailing list. Doing so confirms that they are sending to a valid address.
