Simple! If you know, and are familiar with majority of offering and product of the company, you may be loving it. In my case, it is Google, who is and going to dominate our world with wide range of product line.
Google itself having 100’s of sister products excluding Search, AdWord and AdSense. It is ranging from Google Labs to Blogger, Groups, Notes, News, Alerts, Dictionary and lot more including wave from labs, CheckOut, SMS and Gmail.
Right now (April 02, 2011) shows my Web History as,
- Total Google searches: 47617
and yeah, i know there may be trouble enabling Web History (Privacy!!), but i ‘d love to check my previous search results via Web History when I am having difficulty recalling things I would have searched in past. So, in such difficult time, Web History helps a lot to find a particular keyword or results, moreover it is having trends and analytics feature, which shows current trend and usage along with timestamps related to one’s search!
One should use Google Support in order to get rid of problems in their Apps and other google based paid service.
Above URL is kind of feature-rich extensive Search API me ! I have attached it to Opera default search engine with tweaked 100 results, xx-hacker language and Unicode utf-8 encoding. So, no more next.. next..!
~ Google show maximum 9 * 100 = 900 result for particular keyword. 100 result each page and 9 pages!
Several other products, which Google serves at their best!
Dashboard is very great feature to inquire all data related to Google and their Apps.
No doubt, Gmail is one of the best products of Google, with lots of customization in theme, Priority Inbox, Lab Addons and free POP3 and IMAP for external support !
They do even provide Patent Search, Market/Finance Report, Currency Converter ! ie. 1 USD = ? INR
Google Analytics is very cool feature of them to have their watch in almost all website ! They do track us ! lol Whatever they might be doing, its great feature to track visitors and improve traffic via some seo.
Google Realtime Search to query search feed of twitter, news and facebook with timeline.
Google Web Fonts lets one use all the fonts available via the Google Web Fonts API in one’s website ! All fonts are available in the directory for preview. Typographers and graphic designers would love to add their custom font types in there.
Apps Status Dashboard – to check integrity of current App and downtime/failure/unavailability categorized as No Issues | Service disruption | Service outage | Information available ! 🙂
Some morning Google announced that they’re now running a free DNS server for everyone to use.
So, these are the IP addresses of Google’s DNS server: 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 .
Interesting and unexpected.
Why? Obviously they get a lot of data — all the sites we’re visiting.
Have you tried it? If not, why not?
If so, how is it? They say it's faster -- is it?
They say they won't screw with it. Do you believe them?
FYI: I’m using it here on my LAN. Just changed the configuration of my router, so all my machines will start using their DNS.
