Are you Ga Ga For Google?

Google is an office professional’s best friend. I remember the days when you could use Google as a search engine only. Now Google can help you do things like……

Google Docs
– Create and share your online documents, presentations and spreadsheets
Google Voice- Don’t have time to listen to voicemails? Have them transcribed and delivered to your Google account and read them online. Yes, you can listen to voicemails as well. Note: you must receive an invitation from Google or someone who already has this FREE service. If you want more information, let me know by posting a comment to this article.
Google Maps – Go anywhere in the world from your office! View buildings in 3D, satellite imagery, maps, and terrain. I saw my house!
Google Desktop – Personalize your desktop with some fun and helpful widgets that get you through the day (ie. weather, jokes, news, etc.)
GOOG-411 –Find and get phone numbers, addresses, etc for businesses
iGoogle – personalize your homepage with things you can use (games, weather, horoscopes, tips for the day, to do lists, calendar, and for you sports fans get updates of scores from your favorite sports games).
Google Health – organize your medical records, prescriptions, etc. online

Don't have time to look at your computer, get Google on your cellphone! By the way, don’t forget to use Google as a search engine…these services are just the tip of the iceberg. Want more got to Google has revolutionized the internet; I think that Google is going to be up there with Twitter, the term will be called "Googling." I even look forward to the different holiday themes that the word ‘Google’ will have on the search engine page. Are you Googling?
