Geek Tip: Get Quick Dictionary Definitions Via Email

Have you ever been stuck in a cabin in the woods playing Scrabble with your friends when an intense debate begins about the spelling of the game-taking word? Next time you're without a strong internet connection (or just don't feel like doing the googling yourself) you can use your smartphone or computer to email and you'll be treated to the dictionary definition and synonyms of any word.

All you have to do is send a blank email to the address. Make the subject line: "define myword" where "myword" is insert the word whose definition you need.

It's also a fast way to solve word queries during lunch with friends because you don't have to suffer through a mobile search engine.
