Did you ever get a question from someone that they could have easily answered for themselves with a simple Google search?
I saw this on an episode of Tekzilla recently. When someone asks you a question, type it into letmegooglethatforyou.com. A link is created showing an animated example of how to key the same question into a Google search. Send your friend the link and they should get the hint.
Give someone a link and they’ll have information for a day. Teach someone how to use the Google, and they’ll never bug you again.
Doofus: What is the Capital of Chile?
Me: Um, just a second. (type type type)
Me: Got your answer. Here’s the link. Check it out.
