Thanks to Google’s policy of allowing employees time each week to work on pet projects, the company is forever unleashing cool services for us to try. A few Google tools to add to your arsenal:
Google Sets (labs.google.com/sets): You type in two or more things in a series, and Google completes the list. It comes in handy when you can’t quite recall the name of something (like Dallas Cowboys, Pittsburgh Steelers …).
Get more out of your favorite search engine with our newest office tech webinar — Power GooglingTranslator (translate.google.com): Need to translate text for a Spanish-speaking audience? Plug in your text and choose the language.
Google Reader (reader.google.com): Rather than checking a news site every few minutes, use Reader to keep track of only what’s new. First, select the web sites or topics you want to follow, hit the Subscribe button, and Reader whips up a list of recent stories for you on a single page. No more clicking through each site.
Google Alerts (google.com/alerts): Going one step further than Reader, Google Alerts keep you current on what’s happening in your industry. (And that’s bound to help you propel your career forward or make brainy conversation.) Plug in search phrases, such as “administrative professional” or “health care trends.” When someone mentions those terms online, you receive an e-mail alert.
Because Power Googling is an interactive webinar there is NO LIMIT to the number of questions you can ask during the event, and no limit to the number of co-workers you can invite to listen in ... unless you want to guard these secrets for yourself! Learn more about this event...
Is Google's Chrome browser right for you?
It’s fast. If you’re a “power user,” (someone who spends lots of time on the web, with many windows or tabs open at once) you’ll appreciate Chrome’s speed. Other browsers slow to a crawl when you load several complex sites, but not Chrome.
It’s secure. Hackers have compromised Firefox, Safari and Explorer, but not Chrome.
It makes search even easier. If you type an address into the input bar—the bar at the top of the browser—you get a list of pages you’ve visited in the past and top search results from Google.
To make sure you benefit from this interactive event, the first 50 registrants will also receive a copy of 77 Technology Tips to Boost Office Productivity. This best-selling Special Report will help increase your efficiency in Word, Outlook, Excel and on the Web. It’s the perfect complement to Power Googling – and it’s yours absolutely free.
If you’ve been looking for a way to get more out of Google – and get it faster – your search is over. Join us May 27th for Power Googling! Register now...
