Taking a Trip? Google Can Help
Posted by on 04/16/11
If you are going on vacation, Google can be a valuable traveling companion. Want to know what clothes to pack? Enter your destination city and "weather" in the Google search box (e.g. Seattle weather) and find the current temperature and a forecast for the next four days. Wondering if your mother's flight to Florida is on time? Enter the airline code and flight number (e.g. AA 1656) to learn departure and landing times. Are you shopping in a foreign country and need to know what an item costs in U.S. dollars? Enter the amount of the country's currency in the search box followed by "into dollars" (e.g. 50 euros into dollars). Wondering what time it is at home? Enter "time in" and the city in the search box (e.g. time in Chicago). Bon voyage.
