Google is not just your average search engine, Google is a way of life. Google is something you live not something you do. Honestly how did the world exist before Google. Google is a technology innovation more than a word it's a world of possibilities. I would be willing to be you that there is more that you do not know about Google than you know. Here is a list of things you most likely will be shocked that Google offers just to help make your everyday life a little bit more convenient and a lot more productive. Believe it or not this hub doesn't cover all that Google has to offer so for that I guess I will need to write another hub on some of my other favorite Google things.
