Meet Dr.Google!

You know its out there...somewhere...in the outer reaches of the web. And you want it. So you search. And you look here. And you search. And you look there. And you search. And you look everywhere. And you cant find it. So you give up. And you say "@%#&".

Frustrated? Depressed? Cant get what you need? Turn to Dr.Google.

These carefully measured prescriptions from the good doctor are guaranteed to pep you up. You'll find exactly what you are looking for. Be it Bon Jovi or Bhangra. And all for free. If its music you want, its music you'll get. If its movies you lust after, its movies for you. These carefully researched, time-tested methods show you how to avoid the hair splitting associated with finding the stuff you need, online. And did I mention the magic word? Its FREE.

That's right. Free. Free of cost. Free of chemicals. Free of pesticides.

What's more, Dr.Google has agreed to a special introductory lecture to convince you of its efficacy. And here it is.

To get started, use the following special medicine to get what you want:

For music:

Prescription:
?intitle:index.of? mp3 (artist/song name)

Pearls of wisdom:
Replace the "(artist/song name)" part with the song name or artist you are searching for. This shows a list of songs by the specified artist. If only the song name is specified, it will show pages which contain that song.

For example: To search for songs by the Beatles, use this string:
?intitle:index.of? mp3 Beatles

The above string will search only for songs in the MP3 format. To search other formats, replace the "mp3" part with the required format, like "cda", "ogg", "wma" and so on.

To search for the same artist/song in a variety of formats at the same time, use this variation:
?intitle:index.of? mp3|cda|ogg|wma (artist/song name)

Usage:
Open www.Google.com.
Enter prescription string in the Google search box.
Click the 'Google Search' button.
Take a deep breath as the magic unfolds.

For video:

Prescription:

?intitle:index.of? avi (Clip name)
?intitle:index.of? 3gp
(Clip name)

Pearls of wisdom:
Same as for music, except the format is different. The first string searches for video in the avi format. To search for other formats, replace "avi" with the required format, like "mpg", "mpeg", "mov" or "wmv".

You can even seach for clips which can be played on your cell phone. Most cell phone movies are in the 3GP format. To search for them, replace the "avi" part with "3gp", as in the second string above.

Similar to music, to search for the same clip in different formats at the same time, use this variation:
?intitle:index.of? avi|mpg|mpeg|3gp|wmv|mov

Usage:
Open www.Google.com.
Enter prescription string in the Google search box.
Click the 'Google Search' button.
Take a deep breath as the magic unfolds.

Happy Searching and Downloading!
