Google officially takes over the world

Well, not quite, but they're working on it.

I was doing some research on tools for managing pictures and video and learned that Google has tools for both--Picasa for photos and Google Video for videos, though I don't want to share my videos with the world. And in fact, they have tools for a lot of needs.

If you've never used Google Earth, you're missing out on a really cool tool.

Of course Blogger, which I'm using to create this blog, is another tool from Google.

And if you're not a fan of PayPal, Google Purchases will be launching within the next few days.

How about an email account with over 2.5 gigabytes of storage? Gmail is Google's answer.

If you'd like a whole slew of Google tools along with Norton Antivirus and a six-month virus update subscription for free, they too are available.

The amazing thing about Google is that while all of these tools are free, they make $1.44 million per employee, double that of their competitors.
