    It’s difficult to Google things you don’t know anything about, the things you’re unaware of. So the notion “that everything you want to know is a click away” is somewhat misleading. I don’t really know what I want to know – or what I should know. And I do think there’s a risk of duplicating the same series of thought over and over again, in stead of following up on it. What do you think?

Nice job, you found it!

Now, go try out the 12th one:

Use Google Translate to bypass a paywall...

Ran into a page you can't read because it is blocked or paywalled? Here's a quick trick (doesn't always work, but often does!):

Type the page into Google translate (replace the example with the page you want):

http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&u=http://example.com/

How about that!?
