Talking How to use Google

Ok after reading the forums and stuff it seems that people are either A) Afraid of using Google, or B) don't know how to use it.

Let me start

First open your web browser... in the address bar type in:
www.google.com

you'll get a nice looking clean page with the word GOOGLE on it and a nice search bar.



ok now for fun you can put anything in that search bar.

Let's say I'm looking to what SERO is or what SERO stands for, I simply type in
SERO and push search.



The 2nd listings gave me the result in less then 5 secondss/

now let's say I want to find out more about the new sprint instinct, I simply type in Sprint Instinct and it gives me lots of links to everything I ever wanted to know about the phone (including videos).



anyways, never be afraid of THE GOOGLE!!

We all laugh at this, but we'd probably be surprised by how many people would truly benefit from this thread and videos (like my mom). She calls me every time Windows wants to install updates because she doesn't know what to do.

It's cute and all, but it wont help much. People will still start new threads every time something pops into their heads.

Does anyone know if it's possible to go to the very last page of results? I've always wondered what the umpteenmillionth result is to whatever my search query was.

Hmm, well it just might be "googol" pages but I think it's possible.
