Casio fx-570ES Scientific Calculator Tweak

http://edu.casio.com/products/ntd/fx570es/

I bought a new Scientific Calculator, Casio fx-570ES. You can click on the link above for more information about the calculator. Previously I am using Casio fx-570MS until recently I left my calculator at my hometown. The function for both of them are similar, and I am being told that the newer fx-570ES support more calculation function/feature which are not available in the older model.  The one on the left is fx-570MS, (belongs to my housemate) and the one on the right is my new fx-570ES.

Normal functionality of the new calculator doesn’t give much problem to me, location of the keys similar to the new one. One thing that really bugs me on the new calculator is they remove the number prefix (like milli, nano, pico, Mega, Kilo, …) on the new calculator, and they change the combination of the SHIFT + Number to other functions. I will say I rely a lot on this function on my previous Scientific Calculator for the calculation of timing in my coding work.

Google Search by Image

Let’s say you have an image file, that you are interested in, and the filename is not really giving much information about the source of the image, how you can get more information about the image? What I normally do is to describe the image using the best words I can think of by looking at the image, and search for those words in Google. This is not a very good method, and sometimes didn’t guarantee good result.

From now on, you don’t have to worry about the problem above, or use my method of searching about the image. Google has launched the Search by Image (http://images.google.com/). Watch the video to get the idea of this new Search by Image.
