VSL:WEB // Give your friends an online etiquette lesson

Time is tight — so the next time a friend or co-worker e-mails you with a stupid question, don’t answer! Send him to Let Me Google That for You instead.

Like Google itself, the cheeky app is simple to use: Your clueless and/or lazy friend shoots you a question (“When is the inauguration?”). You type it into Let Me Google That for You and e-mail back the resulting link, which is more cute than cutting and might save your friendship rather than end it. As for the inauguration? Here, let us Google that for you.
