Googlicious

That is our new word for all-encompassing, innovative brilliance.  Google knows how to stay ahead of the game when it comes to everything from email to blogging to creating an intranet. There are a number of Google Applications that allow organizations, schools, businesses, and even your grandparents to create their own online identity and stay organized.  While you are stuck in the year 2000 using hotcakes199@yahoo.com, your grandma could probably figure out how to create a crochet blog, add photos and a widget, and customize her email to nanna@crochetrevolution.com.

The strategy (no, actually that's wizardry) that seems to keep Google on top is it's simplicity and it's price... practically free. Maybe $10 to get a domain, but that's about it.  It seems to be the way of the online world so be careful what you are paying for, it might be free tomorrow.   Everything is so user-friendly and low cost these days, you almost hate to share the secret.

I am a Google junkie - Gmail, Google search, Google maps (love street view), Google Mac - the list goes on!
