Did You Know?
With Chrome, you do not have to always go to www.google.com to type in a search query. Instead, you can write your search query directly onto the browser’s address bar and it opens up the search engine results!
I did not know how to draft a technical “Did You Know” article without making it a post on facts and numbers. Those are for the infographics. For me, I will play safe on my blogging ground. For that I needed the very much loved “Did You Know”s like they appear in a Reader’s Digest book.
Of course, my pages may be a little old and crumpled now. Yet I have strived over these pieces and grabbed them out from the darkest corners of the techie closet.
These may seem a little too obvious to some of you, but to others, they may be breaking news. I know quite a bunch of people who don’t know these things.
First, the term ‘Black Hat Techniques’ might be new. Businesses and even personal website owners are familiar with it. Let’s put this quickly, Black Hat techniques is villainy – manipulating search engines for higher search relevancy. Google penalizes these people.
Yet, you can possibly buy Facebook accounts having 2k, 3k, 5k friends! ~Looks more to me like buying friends/people you can force your content on. You can buy backlinks and even a ready-made high ranking Website!
It’s shocking to see this run by thousands of tricksters trying to help each other with black hat tricks over the forum! I even saw one named Larry Page, who was interested in buying a high PR website. *snort*. Who knows maybe it is Larry Page trying to pull off some private joke.
Search engine algorithms supposedly punish the tiniest of black hattery if found on a website, what about clearing this black hat hub??
Interesting (off-topic) fun fact #1:
“Dictionary.com is the world’s largest and most authoritative online dictionary.” As if you need an introduction. As a result of the on-the-go, always-available online Oxford, lesser and lesser people buy dictionaries (the ones on pages with printed ink, remember?). Its close relative Thesaurus.com is definitely one that most writers keep open up on a browser tab. It has weirdly accurate senses about words and articles you’d like, or would search for.
Where do think it grabs that sixth sense? Anyone for cookies?
No? Ok, read another fun fact:
And this happened earlier this month! Reading about it was just ridiculous, what with cyber weapons being cited. After a World War II, there isn’t going to be World War III as hypothised, people, but a Cyber War I.
Here’s how it’s played: “A recent New York Times investigation has suggested that President Obama, in cooperation with the Israelis, has consistently ordered sophisticated cyber attacks on the computer systems that run Iran’s main nuclear enrichment facilities.”
The fitted camera at the end of his trombone gives the video a hilarious effect of a bobbing head. I will definitely share the video with you!

Let’s do one last and innovative DYK now.
Go figure! MICASA Lab, Zurich has come up with this innovative idea that claims to keep an iPhone charged up through regular rocking. Have super energetic kids? Let their energy help you save time to recharge your iPhone batteries.
This brilliant piece of art features a docking stand on the armrest and speakers in the back rest!
“If you use iRock for 60 minutes you can recharge an iPad 3 to 35%,” is what they themselves have to say! You can grab one for $1300 and opt any out of 5 different colours – of rocking chairs, hell yeah!
