How to use search like a pro: 10 tips and tricks for Google and beyond

search engines are pretty good to find what you are looking for in these days but sometimes still up briefly. For the opportunities that there are a few little known tricks that come in handy.
Here are some tips for better googling (as it is the most popular search engine), but many of them work on other search engines.

1. Exact phrase


the simplest and most effective way of searching for something specific is the use of quotation marks around a phrase or name to search, it is precisely these words in this exact order.
For example, to search for Joe Bloggs shows results with both Joe and so, but not necessarily placed one after the other. Search for "John Doe" the surface only those who are especially with the name Max Mustermann somewhere on the side.
The exact or explicit phrase search is very useful for exclusive widespread, but less relevant results.
2. Exclude terms
If the Exact Phrase will not get what you need, you can specifically to certain words about the minus ico…

Soon, wrap your smartphone on the wrist

Soon you may be able to use your smartphone on your wrist or bend your computer to fit in your pocket! Researchers have taken a step towards more flexible devices by fabricating a thin film that keeps her even when very curved electric and magnetic properties useful.

Flexible electronics have been difficult to manufacture because many materials with useful electronic properties tend to be rigid.

Researchers have addressed this problem by taking small pieces of material such as silicon and embedded in the flexible plastic.

A team of physicists and engineers from South Korea took the same approach with bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3) - one of the most promising materials whose properties can be controlled with a magnetic field, and vice versa.

These materials are called multiferroic and attract interest for applications such as energy efficient, instant-on computing.

The researchers synthesized bismuth ferrite nanoparticles and mixed in a polymer solution. The solution was dried in a series o…
