    Do we need a sticky on "How to use Google"?

    Lately I'm under the impression that I have answered a lot of questions by just Googling the answer. And I don't seem to be the only one...

    I know, I know, it's all about finding the right keywords and that's probably the hard part for those who are only starting with electronics. Still it's frustrating me sometimes.

    There is no cure for laziness... As I have said before it never ceases to amaze me that people can use Google to find this forum but they can't use Google to find the answer to their basic questions...

    All in all a Google Sticky would be no use, the same people wouldn't be able to find the sticky...

    I completely agree.

    The problem is people either google too specific of a query or they only look for what they think is the problem. Or they looked at the first 2 responses (ads) on google and didn't find what they were looking for.

    Who would have though twenty years ago that Google would become a Verb?

    I wonder if Webster's Dictionary lists it as a verb.

    I wonder if I can Google "Google"?

    Thanks for your comments.
    Sorry, I should have added a GRIN smiley.

    I'm well aware of these issues. My "proposal" was more of a vent to let out some steam.
