History Is Creepy

If you're like most people on the planet, you use Google as your primary search vehicle. Mine is.

Since we use it so often, it comes as no surprise that once you've found something particularly useful on the interwebs, you'll want to find that something again.

So you think to yourself "Just how did I find that thing I went to previously?" and "How will I ever find it again?"

Sure, you can use your browser's history button, but that only shows you ALL the websites you've visited, but not how you got there. Apparently, Google knew you would one day want to figure out what queries you made AND what you found.

I found out this supposedly little-known secret about Google from Revision 3's Veronica Belmont on the Tekzilla Daily I TiVo every day. She says it's a bit creepy - I'm inclined to agree:

Google History

You'll have to have a Google account set up to do this, but that shouldn't be a problem for most people.

Creepy indeed.
