Fun with Google

Everyone knows how to "google." A new book shows that there is more that can be done with the popular search engine than just typing in a query. "55 Ways to Have Fun with Google" tells how to play games based on the Google search, like the "Google Snake Game." It also goes into how to collect information on world records, how to have fun translating phrases into different languages through Google Translator, and how to design a home using Google SketchUp. Author Philipp Lenssen, who follows Google closely on his Google Blogoscoped blog, says you don't have to be a techie to read it.
