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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
