Week 10: Google Maps, Docs, and Book Search

Hi all,

This week’s Things form part one of a two-part look at some of the other online services that Google offers:

Maps is the online version of Google Earth – you can link to a location from your blog (or an email!), do location searches and find directions. Docs is an online office application, offering word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations that can be accessed anywhere and edited by multiple users at the same time. Book Search is exactly what it sounds like – Google’s version of a library catalogue! And they aim to have one big library too.
