Creative Searching

1. Go to WDYL websearch by Google and type in technology.  Look around.  Describe something you learned.  Do not repeat anyone else's post, if you do, you will lose half of your points on this question. YIKES!  Be sure to read previous posts!  (20)

2. Go to WDYL websearch and type in your own topic.  What did you pick? What did you learn? (20)

3. How useful is this? (10)

    2. I searched up "Guitars" because it's an instrument that I like to play. I learned about the guitar and the different parts of it and the names of it in different languages.

    3. This can be useful because this makes it easier to stay on one topic instead of searching on regular Google which gets off topic after a while of searching.

  23. 1. Apparently, in the last 12 months the interest for technology has been gradually declining. Obviously a chart shows that the interest fluctuates, but averagely people aren't caring about technology gradually.

    2. I chose to search game programming and found that HTML5 might make a breakthrough as the new way of programming games.

    3. This is significant because programmers might have to learn the new language and games themselves might change as a result of this.

  24. 1. Wow i was kinda surprised to see that the interest in technology is declining, however interest in the iphone is currently going up. I guess that just kinda shows that people care more about a product then the methods used for making that product.
    2. I picked meme, the interest in that has spiked a ton in recent years, probably due to the fact that more bored teenagers have access to computers now. WDYL has some nifty tools but i dont find it very useful
    3. Personally i dont think WDYl is very good for research, i mean it would be good if you wanted to find pictures or send an email about that subject. Its just not a very useful tool

  25. 1. I learned that a cell phone deletes a voice mail after it hasn't been touched by anyone after 2 weeks! I've never heard anything like this before!

    3. I would say this site could be useful depending on what your doing. If your doing a report on something, it could kind of help but if your doing a HUGE Project I just think it wouldn't help to much.

  26. 1)I discovered that by tying in technology, google provides different sources to find any information about Technology. One of these is Google News. In Google News I saw that NASA's "Mohawk Guy" is going to be hosting a radio show. It will be on a rock radio station created by NASA.
    2) I searched "Ford Bronco." I have a a Bronco and I knew they were popular but I didnt realize how many of them were clustered in certain areas. Phoenix has the second highest popularity When it comes to a Bronco, following behind Denver, Colorado.
    3) I feel that WDYL is very useful. It comes up with 3D diagrams, patents, news articles, pictures, and anything else relative to the searched topic. All you have to do is type in what you want and all your options pop up. Even when researching a topic, you could find books that will be helpful to read.

  27. 1. I found out i could start a large discussion on moderator over technology, and here opinions from people all over.
    2.I searched pencil sketching because i love drawing painting and just art related activity.

    2. I chose gaming and I learned that game stop has considered selling classic cartridge games at there stores

    3.It is a little useful but I think the only thing you couldn't get from doing the same search is the internet popularity slide.

  31. I learned that the Egyptians used technology in their great architectural achievements. Technology does not mean electronic devices, but ideas and applied inventions which make life easier and more efficient.
    2 I picked House Music and I learned that Daft Punk has a new album coming out on 3 13 13.

COOL! :D

    2. Well, I searched Cody Simpson and I found out that I could, "Scour the earth for cody simpson" and which thats preety creepy I found that this site has a lot of info on it! From translating of languages to news aboiut your topic, its like a categorized google search!

    3. I sort of covered this in my last response but I feel that this could be useful for when I'm bored and I wanna just learn something new. It is really cool but not on my top five list of go to sites.

  34. 1. I found a funny video about how our technology is getting smaller and smaller and eventually we wont be able to use it, and about how it seems that right after we get a new piece of technology, a few days later there is a new piece ready to replace it.
