How times have changed since Google was a humble search engine. Today, you can edit office documents, share calendars, manage your address book, blog, receive alerts, synchronise your mobile devices, talk online, watch and upload videos, store your web search history, upload edit and share photos, and more.
How do you keep track of how much information the mighty Google has on you?
It’s a fairly simple concept: as any good dashboard application should, it simply displays which of Google’s services you’re using and makes it easy to access settings, such as privacy control.
Today, the Dashboard covers more than 20 products and services, including Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Web History, Orkut, YouTube, Picasa, Talk, Reader, Alerts, Latitude and many more. The scale and level of detail of the Dashboard is unprecedented, and we’re delighted to be the first Internet company to offer this.
Check it out, particularly if you use a lot of Google services. You might be surprised how much you rely on Google!
Have you checked out the new Flickr App Garden? It’s a repository of home grown apps created by Flickr members who used the Flickr API. Actually, some of these apps are not really newly developed apps. You might have seen or used it before with your Flickr photos. What Flickr did is to organized previously available apps, added new ones and organized them in one place to come up with the App Garden.
In the country where I am located, one way for me to receive payments from contacts abroad is through PayPal. But I received payments in dollar and had to open a dollar account to withdraw the payments I got from PayPal in my local currency. But that will change now as PayPal has added 5 new currencies that it supports including – Brazilian Real, Malaysian Ringgit, Philippine Peso, Taiwan New Dollar and Thai Baht.
