Almost anything you need to know about is right there at your fingertips. No more trekking to the library to find, if it's open, that it doesn't have the book you require, or that another borrower has taken it out.
Things I have researched recently with a few clicks of the mouse:
- Penalties for being an accessory after the fact (actually obstructing justice and harbouring a fugitive)
- Rock star excess
- Brit Art
- The poste restante service, here and in France
- Hix Oyster and Chop House
- Rock star earnings
- 50 Best Guy Movies, and the female equivalent
- parking options in Notting Hill
- hic sunt dracones
...and that's just this week...
