Top 10 Google Products You've Never Heard About

Google is a powerful corporation. They invent new apps day after day, and sometimes they're so carried away by the process that they happen to create very unusual things. Let's make a list of 10 Google products you've most likely never heard about before.

1. Google TakeOut. The first idea that crossed my mind was food. What is Google TakeOut? Google sandwiches? Or Google Coke? Nope. This app enables you to download copies of your data in zip files from Goggle services. A user can archive his data from +1, Knol, Voice, Picasa, Google Docs and some others. This service is not available at the moment.

2. Google Mars. It's a look-alike of Google Maps and it provides visible imagery of the Red Planet.

3. Google Health was a personal health information centralization service that allowed Google users to volunteer their health records. It was withdrawn in 2011.

4. Google SketchUp is a program of creating and editing 3D graphics. SketchUp projects are saved in *.skp. There is a free and limited version of SketchUp and there is also SketchUp Pro, a paid service. Feel inspired with SketchUp.

5. Google Correlate is a tool on Google Trends which enables you to find queries with a pattern similar to a target data series. The target can either be a real-world trend that you provide (e.g. a data set of event counts over time) or a query that you enter.

6. Google Sites makes creating and sharing a website easy. You can start a site from scratch or from a template. It is powerful enough for a company intranet, yet simple enough for a family website.

7. Google HotPot. A new service that keeps an eye on Google Places ratings and helps its users to find suitable places to spend time at. But really I don't know anyone who uses it.

8. What do you love? I love this mashup! It's a simple search box, similar to the one on Google's homepage, but it returns results from more than 20 different Google services, including Google Translate, Trends, YouTube, Maps, and Groups.

9. YouTube Feather. It is a lighter-weight YouTube for netbooks, low-powered PCs. There is an opt-in beta for "Feather" support on YouTube.

10. Panoramio is a photo sharing web-site. The site's goal is to allow Google Earth users to learn more about a given area by viewing the photos that other users have taken at that place. The website is available in several languages. To tell the truth, it took me an hour to sort it out.

Most of these programs are free and you can easily check them out. Some of them are really useful, but others leave much to be desired. Still, you are free to choose!

Google just can't stop creating more and more useless programs.
Who uses them? I don't think that it will work in future.

I like 'What do you love'. Nothing unnecessary.

I don't need all these programs, I use only Google mail and Google search.

I think Google should invent something for children and something more creative.

To my mind, Google Zeitgeist is a worth one. It helps to detect the most popular items that the majority of people are in search of every day.
