Technology Today: Cool Things For You To Play With

By James Knight (Assassination Press)

When your surfing the Internet, it's always a good bet to stop by Google, but not just for the usual search options. They have all kinds of new and innovative services, some are in beta (testing), and some are ready for prime time (general release).

Just go to http://www.google.com/intl/en/options/ for a peek at all the cool new services. There are probably many you didn't know about.

For some cool tools that are still in beta (but which you can still play with), go to http://labs.google.com/.

One of the absolute coolest things that Google has developed so far, is Google Earth (warning: this link is for a Windows Google Earth download).

If you want to learn more what Google Earth can do for you (without downloading), go to http://earth.google.com/index.html. I'm sure you will be as addicted as I am to zooming around a 3-D virtual Earth like Superman. The data, information, and 3-D visuals are sure to fascinate you.

Another cool thing is http://moon.google.com. Follow that link and zoom in all the way, it's good for a laugh.

Google defiantly has some groundbreaking services and features.
It's a great company, i just hope they don't become monopolistic like microsoft.

Google is great! Check out Yahoo also. They have rolled out some new services as well. Check out their search options page -- it has a ton of useful search functions and some conversion features for those like me who can't remember how to convert inches to centimeters.

Deliberate Chaos

I always mess around with Google Maps (maps.google.com) - finding everywhere I've lived, etc. (ok I get bored sometimes!) - but I've never seen that moon one...LOL, that's funny!
