Project Inspired By:
http://www.lynda.com/thekingofrandom. They approached me about a month ago asking if I could compile a list of some of my favorite internet tricks from their website, so I dug around and made this list: http://bit.ly/AdvancedTricks. I got inspiration for each of the useful tricks in my video from their website, and wouldn’t have done it without them. So special thanks for the sponsorship!

Project History & More Info:
I’m usually more geared toward hands-on hacks and projects, but these little internet/computer tricks were fun to play with as well. Some of them I already knew about and have been using since the beginning of time … like screen capturing and private browsing. But many of them were new to me. Like using Quicktime to record my screen, and downloading my Facebook profile. Who knew?
I have a screen capture program I purchased for $40, but I was having so much trouble with it, I ended up just using the Quicktime trick to record all the on-screen video for this compilation. It works great!
From a little quick research, I saw the “barrel roll” trick with Google has been known since 2010, but this was the first time I’ve seen it. It was new to me, and to my wife as well and we really liked it, so I included it for those other people like us who haven’t seen it yet.
In closing, I don’t expect these tricks will be new to everyone. In-fact I expect quite the opposite. But I do expect that the majority of viewers will see a trick or two that they didn’t know about.
I hope my compilation was fun to watch, and educational at the same time. If you felt inspired or learned something new, please like my video and share it with your friends. It will help make them smarter as well. Win/Win!
