Is There Anything Google Can’t Do?

Last night I raised the question: Is there anything Google can’t do?


Years ago, at a seminar on investigative journalism, a veteran reporter suggested that the most underrated tool for digging out information is the phone book. Everyone’s in there, more or less. For years I took that to heart. But lately Google has proven much more valuable for the same sort of thing.

But in my recuperation from knee surgery, I’ve needed a book of a certain heft. It has to be the right height to stand on, stepping up and down over and over to strengthen my quad.

stepping on and off the phone book

Google can’t do that.
