Google does have a lot of applications that can help make life easier! I really like Google Alerts. I have a friend in the Army stationed in Afghanistan. I typed in “Wardak Province” and “10th Mountain Division”, and will now get a news alert when something good or (unfortunately) bad happens. It saves a lot of time searching for news, because when I don’t hear from him I worry.
In the library the possibilities are endless. For example, you could get alerts when books by favorite authors are released. I also liked Google calendar and the share feature. It seems that I am so busy that if I don’t write things down on the calendar I forget! It is easy to use and share! I will use this from now on!
