Google search made easy

As loyal members of Upic's blog community, you are among the most tech savvy staff at your United Way.

Now, just in time for the holiday shopping season comes a free service designed to assist your friends/family harness the power of Google for their Internet searches.

"Let me Google that for you" is the latest tool to help your friends. Just enter their search item and the site produces a link that you can send back to your friend showing them step by step how to find it on Google.

This site is "for all of those people that find it more convenient to bother you with their question rather than google it for themselves".

Try it and prepare to smile. Now was that so hard?

Below are the original PSA and a passerby video shot and posted on "You Tube". Very interesting concept to get the community involved. Check out the videos and the crowd reaction.
