Google Goodies

Friday, March 09, 2007

To those who don't already know, Google services just seem to be getting better and better. If you though Gmail was good, wait till you see some really much cooler services, like Google Home. From here, you can add even more services, including an online version of Microsoft Office and Microsoft Outlook (Google Calender). Check all the services they offer by signing up. If you're worried about clutter, you can always choose the services you want and ignore those you don't. Google Home is truly awesome; You can make it look the way you want it to just be dragging and dropping. Sweet!

Well, apart from the usual Google offered services, there are quite a few Google goodies that you can find. Most notably, some Firefox extensions to fully maximise the awesomeness of Google. You can start here. There are also services to synchronise your Google Calender with either your phone, pda or Microsoft Outlook. (Check here) Really nifty.

If you're wondering where I get my news from, RSS feeds from Google Reader obviously. Really informative. Try it out too!

Edit: I also failed to mention, I've discovered some cool stuff lately. Some of them are really interesting. For starters, consider AllPeers said to be the next big thing, utilising BitTorrent technology but comprising individual (read: PRIVATE) networks. Also, if you thought YouTube was cool, wait till you see Scribd In time, you're going to be able to find just about any book available...

Copyright holders will be screaming their heads off when these services become mainstream...
