The Googley world

Frankly tell me, how many of us aren’t addicted to google search or ‘Googling’ as its popularly known? You’ll find that most of us use google every now and then for searching anything on internet and I must say its THE BEST search engine even though there are other popular search engines in the internet market.

Apart from search engine, if you’re in the US you’ll certainly use Google to get directions using Google map🙂 – this has made my life sO easy; The GPS units too are popular but with G-map u can trust to find it!

Google also has acquired You-tube in 2006 so then now we’re thinking: what next?!

With one gmail id you can access google documents,spreadsheet, reader,library,calendar

Other services are : Dodge ball-a social networking site for mobile users. Feed burner-news feed management service. i-Google-customizable homepage. Google Desktop-application for customizing desktop.

Some of the other popular services are Orkut-social network of friends (I was very much addicted to it, once🙄 )

Page creator-webpage publishing program. Picassa album-Photo uploading and sharing site.

Is also in advertising with Adsense,addwords, Click to call-calling systems for users to advertise for free at google’s expense from search result page!!

Google checkout-online payment processing service for simplifying the process of online payment.

Groups

Web and e-mail discussion service and Usenet archive. Users can join a group, make a group, publish posts, track their favorite topics, write a set of group web pages updatable by members and share group files. In January, 2007, version 3 of Google Groups was released. New features include the ability to create customised pages and share files.

Image Labeler

Game that induces participants to submit valid descriptions (labels) of images in the web, in order to later improve Image Search.

Image Search

Image search engine, with results based on the filename of the image, the link text pointing to the image and text adjacent to the image. When searching, a thumbnail of each matching image is displayed.

Language Tools

Collection of linguistic applications, including one that allows users to translate text or web pages from one language to another, and another that allows searching in web pages located in a specific country or written in a specific language.

Life Search

Search engine tailored towards everyday needs, such as train times, recipes and housing.

Movies

Music Trends

Phew!😯 that was something!!

I received a funny email forward sometime back and it looks at a lighter aspect of Google, the pic is given below. 😀

Google in future

This is a THING to be worried isn’t it? 😉

This is not any endorsement of Google or its products and services-my aim is to tell that we’re so much depended on products and services provided by Google.

  6. I have to agree that the Google Checkout is a nice feature especially for people that don’t have a website. It offers a quick and easy way to process payments. As your volume and recognition starts to grow, you mind want to look for a merchant account to reduce some of those fees. A great option would be ImGlobal Solutions. You can check them out at http://www.imglobalsolutions.com
