Many of you might have used Google docs and spreadsheet, but have you ever tried this "magic" trick ;)


Ok, open up a spreadsheet and enter "Google" in the top left cell, and enter "Yahoo" in the cell below. Now select both the cells you created. Hold down the Ctrl key, and drag the bottom right corner of the selection downwards over the other cells. See the fun when you release the key/mouse



A sample screenshot



You can try any combinations and have fun

Try combinations like:

a) file, edit....
b) batman, superman....
c) olympics, asian games....
d) abhishek, amitabh...
e) tom cruise, brad pitt...

Q: What's happening here?
A: Well, thats from a member of Google Labs called Google Sets. One of the oldest member of labs and still listed. This tool automatically expands a given set of items. And which is being used for fun/productivity in spreadsheet :)

Tell me if you find some more interesting sets of keywords
