Google Adds More Mobile Search Options

In a world where smartphone apps get all the attention, Google keeps improving things for users with basic cell phones.

In today's bustling world of smartphone apps, Google has kept an eye on the guy who may not have hundreds to drop on a phone. Google continuously revamps its mobile browser edition so basic handhelds get the same thorough search experience you'd find on a smartphone.

The latest evolution in mobile search is a filtering option that allows for specified search results. This feature almost seems like it was created specifically for picky tech shoppers. Search for a device, click the "options" drop-down located beneath the search bar, and filter your results. You can scope out forums to get the word-of-mouth nitty gritty, or reviews from trusted sources. Further delve into your results by choosing a timeframe -- any time; past 24 hours; past week; etc.

Google's advancement takes the desktop experience into the palm of your hand, even if you have a basic cell phone. And in a world where some people have decided they'd rather fiddle with a phone than in the bedroom, well, props go to Google for making that possible.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
