Finding Short Answers

When you are looking for a single fact or an answer to a simple problem, here are three sites to search in addition to the usual Google and Yahoo. Answers.com delivers definitions and explanations on over one million topics. Amazon.com Search Inside the Book delivers millions of pages from print books. And Wikipedia which is not edited by professional fact checkers, but is still a pretty reliable resource for non-controversial topics.
