Google OS

Quick poll — which Google products do you use on a regular basis?


  • Mail
  • Docs
  • Notebook (highly underrated and underpromoted)
  • Calendar (can’t live without it)
  • Maps
  • Product/Shopping (formerly Froogle)
  • Video
  • Picasa
  • Alerts
  • News

There are a few others I use infrequently (iGoogle, Code, Patent Search, Book Search) and only a few I never use (Finance, Earth). I trust a lot of my online life to Google and at this point, I still trust them. I’m sure someday they’ll erode that trust, but for now, they’re my friend.

I use:

Blog Search
GOOG-411 (best thing ever)

I’d give Notebook more of a chance but it doesn’t work in Safari & OmniWeb. Blah.

Search, huh? I’ll have to give that a shot.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
