Here’s a great article I read in the NY Times. The writer lists several simple, but smart tips for the basic computer user.
A few examples:
* Google is also a units-of-measurement and currency converter. Type “teaspoons in 1.3 gallons,” for example, or “euros in 17 dollars.” Click Search to see the answer.
* You can tap the Space bar to scroll down on a Web page one screenful. Add the Shift key to scroll back up.
