10 Things about ‘Google’ you don’t know about it

#1. Barrel roll
This one trended worldwide on Twitter in November. Simply search “do a barrel roll” — if you have Google’s instant results functions enabled, your results page will be spinning before you’ve completed the instruction

#2. Gravity
If you are feeling like searching “Google gravity” and hitting “I’m feeling lucky”, don’t be surprised if Google comes crashing down around you the second you move the mouse. (Hint: you can disable Google’s instant results in your account preferences page to make sure you get the ‘I’m feeling lucky’ option).

#3. See what the Dutch haven been searching for recently using Google Insights
Google is the most popular search engine in almost any country in the world. Google Insights (like the name suggests) gives you ‘insights’ of what people have been searching for around the world. For example, Netherlands:

#4. Create unlimited disposable email addresses with Gmail
That’s right, you can add one or more dots ANYWHERE between your username and send messages to that ‘new’ email. All of those messages will arrive to your old (without dots) email. Hard to explain without a picture. But somehow Google did find a way to do it…

Sometimes you may receive a message sent to an address that looks like yours but has a different number or arrangement of periods. While we know it might be unnerving if you think someone else’s mail is being routed to your account, don’t worry: both of these addresses are yours.
Gmail doesn’t recognize dots as characters within usernames, you can add or remove the dots from a Gmail address without changing the actual destination address; they’ll all go to your inbox, and only yours. In short: = = =
All these addresses belong to the same person. You can see this if you try to sign in with your username, but adding or removing a dot from it. You’ll still go to your account.
Yep, this is an explanation from Google itself. Now that you understand this, let’s keep going.

#5. Scan and Read your RSS feeds like email messages in Google Reader

You probably know how easy it is to open and read email messages in Gmail thanks to the list view. Well, you can do the same in Google Reader
The default view in Google Reader is ‘expanded’ which makes the items pretty difficult to scan and read. If you change the view from expanded to ‘list’, then it becomes WAY easier to SCAN items and pick what you like.

#6. Tilt

Google continues to be the king when it comes to a superior web experience with a superior sense of humor. Google “tilt” and see the subtly tilted search results

#7. Type the following “(sqrt(cos(x))*cos(200x)+sqrt(abs(x))-0.7)*(4-x*x)^0.01, sqrt(9-x^2), -sqrt(9-x^2) from -4.5 to 4.5″ (without quotes)

If type the above in google search bar the results will amaze you.

#8. How To Use The Google Calculator From Simple To Complex Calculations

Google is not as simple as most of us think. You can convert google to calculator anytime to solve simple maths questions to advanced calculations. Google’s calculator was designed to solve problems without a lot of math syntax, so you may occasionally find calculator results when you didn’t even realize you were searching for the answer to a math equation. To use Google’s built-in calculator function, simply enter the calculation you’d like done into the search box.
