Use This Magic Word When Googling for Tech Support

August 11, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Adding one word to your Google searches will help find solutions faster.

The next time you’re pulling your hair out over a technical support issue, you might want to try this simple trick to help you find real answers to the problem you’re experiencing:

Add “solved” to your search query. Rather than just describe your problem, i.e. “Outlook won’t sync to my Droid smartphone,” try adding +SOLVED to the end of the search. Many tech support message boards use “[SOLVED]” to close threads on technical support issues.

One other trick is to use ~solved instead of +solved. Using the “~” (the tilde) tells Google to not only look for “solved,” but also synonyms for solved, such as “fixed,” “resolved,” etc.

Solved stampGetting great results from Google is usually a matter of writing better queries. Here’s a helpful article on ways to improve your search skills, straight from Google:

Backup Real Estate Files with Amazon Cloud Drive

April 12, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Get 5GB of Free Online Storage

Backup important files, music, and more with Amazon.com dependability

Amazon.com recently launched Amazon CloudDrive, a service which allows you to backup files as well as stream digital music from any web-connected computer.

Right now, anyone can register and receive a free 5GB account at no charge. (5GB holds roughly 1000 songs.) But there’s no reason you have to use the free space for songs. If you have photos, documents, or other “can’t do without” files, Amazon’s free 5GB of CloudDrive is a great place to back them up.

(As a bonus, if you happen to purchase an MP3 album from Amazon, they’ll give you 20GB of storage free for one year.)

Amazon has famously stable and secure storage, and even their paid plans are extremely affordable. While we love competing services such as Dropbox.com, Amazon’s CloudDrive is actually 58% cheaper (when comparing 50GB plan).
