Google is much more than a search engine, but most people don't know how to access the other features. This is a big, big book and it will show you the ropes. Get high altitude photos of almost any urban area and have Google label the roads. Have Google show the names and locations of the restaurants. Add driving directions. Read and respond to blogs; create your own blog. And on into the night.
