Monocle for Quick Web Searches
One thing about using the iPad that my kids love to do is search the web from the Search bar. They don't want to waste time waiting for a browser to open before typing in their queries. Now there's (sort of) a way to do that on a Mac called Monocle. What Monocle does is put an icon in your taskbar that allows you to do a quick web search without having to open up a browser. The premise is that you are so incredibly busy that you cannot possibly take the time to open up Chrome or Safari and do a proper search so you have to use Monocle. I used it and it works. Would I use it in the future? Probably not. But it's cool and you might find it useful. Plus, a lot of image searches for "monocle" have pictures of guys with cool mustaches. So, it's got that going for it.
