This really is the stuff of science fiction:
I want to know which version of SQL server I'm running. I type into Google
"find out sql server version"
and the top result tells me what to do.
You could imagine an SF novel:
"He opened his terminal to the global megabrain and typed in his question. The answer came back in a split second."
I've been doing some PHP coding and Google is my online documentation. Compared to when I last did some serious coding - 6 years ago, things have moved on so much.
