    20 Google search shortcuts to hone your Google-fu - Gadgetbox on NBCNews.com (click for full article)

    "Hidden behind Google's search box are a slew of shortcuts leading to so-called "OneBox" results that provide awesome tools and display helpful information quickly and directly. You might think you know them all, but a few are more hidden than others.


    Google's OneBox is the result you get when Google magically knows the answer to a search you perform. Above the normal search results, Google gives your the definitive answer to your search - or a miniature, interactive tool to continue your search. These are different from search operators that help you narrow your search.


    With the OneBox results you can quickly find the weather, learn what a medication is, peek at a musicians discography, and even find release dates for movies. With this power you can find the information you're looking for almost instantly, and you'll look like the smartest person in the room for knowing the results before anyone else."
