Google Experimental Search has been removed[edit]

It seems like Google removed that option since almost no one used it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.65.27.203 (talk) 12:37, 28 May 2012 (UTC)


Magnifier[edit]

Google launched a new music blog at [1]. Noteworthy? Wired seems to think so: "Google has entered the content business." Link: [2] Ckywht (talk) 18:00, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Copy Editing[edit]

I have made an attempt at copy editing: -Sorted out some clumsy English and typos -Made the first sentence of each a summary of the service -Removed ePayements, as doesn't seem to be official Google Service yet -Removed some extraneous information which should be in main article -Stopped dates being links -Removed Google Translate, it is part of Google Language Tools -Removed some errors, or statements for which there is no evidence on internet

If anyone can be bothered it might be a good idea to have categories in the table, e.g: -Date created -Cost -Beta status

Or, perhaps this information shouldn't be on this page at all.

The page reads badly in places, and the information about a service often seems to be rather arbitrary, but I think it is better than before. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.136.123.42 (talkcontribsWHOIS)

Headings, Please (and other organisational concepts)[edit]

I think this article should be organised into headings. I have devised a possible solution to the headings' hierarchy, and it should be ok to implement it. However, due to it being such a radical change, I think it should be discussed, along with other possible ways of improving the article.

Here is the structure I have created (along with examples of heading content):

  1. Advertising: AdWords, AdSense, Click-to-Call
  2. Applications: Earth, Picasa, Browser Tools
  3. Office Suite: Spreadsheets, Writely, Calendar
  4. Social: Gmail, Orkut, Talk
  5. Web Development: Analytics, Code, Sitemaps
  6. Web Searching:
    1. Analysis (zeitgeist, trends)
    2. Maps (maps, ride finder, transit)
    3. Subject-specific search engines (finance, froogle)
    4. Media-specific search engines (images, video)

There are, of course, other options. A logical idea would be to split the page into two new articles of "Services" and "Tools". But then, the hard thing would be maintaining both pages, ensuring each new service or tool has been placed onto the "correct" page.

My final idea would be to delete the logo thumbnails, and replace it with more useful information, such as development stage (labs, beta, final etc.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] ([[User talk:{{{1}}}|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/{{{1}}}|contribs]])

This all sounds good really, so maybe you would like to set up a Talk:List of Google services and tools/Draft 2 for the page? And then we can send it through a voting process Martin Porcheron 06:17, 30 June 2006 (UTC)
I've started it on the draft 2 subpage (see martin's post), and i will let everyone know once it is ready to replace the current design. --Joe C 13:31, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
Okay, it should be ready for replacement now. Personally, I think it is more suited to the idea of a "list", because it is set out in the recommended Wikipedia way. It also makes the page size smaller, because it was getting slightly over the limit. I am pleased with the headings I have used, so I would like to put this forward as a replacement. --Joe C 00:21, 6 July 2006 (UTC)
The draft article is now available here. --Joe C 11:36, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

Proposed Article Change (Straw Poll)[edit]

We have had a similar poll in the past (1st June) which resulted in the current article format however MamboJambo has created list format, this was orignally an option although a draft was never created. The options are Keep to keep the current and Change to change to this simple list format.

I will, on the 25th total the votes. Noone can vote twice. There must be a majority, if there is a stalemate then the current format will stay.

The poll will end on the 24th July 2006 (midnight, UTC). Martin Porcheron 15:35, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

  • Keep, I like the list format however I prefer the table. Martin Porcheron 15:35, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Change, I like the list format's simple 'Easy on the eyes' look. Blatkinson 17:35, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Keep; table is more informative and visually pleasing. (by the way, Wikipedia isn't a democracy) — getcrunk what?! 18:36, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Keep, Table format is far easier to read and generally looks better. Perhaps the descriptions could be shortened, as there are links to pages with further information. Stephen McGlynn 22:26, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Why does the heading at the top of the talk page mention voting at all? I thought this was a straw poll and not a democracy. 68.97.180.250 04:26, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Rename to Google products[edit]

Could the list be renamed to List of Google products ?

I think 'products' can include both tools and services, because they are all productions from Google. A website is essentially a product.

A big advantage of the rename would be that its easier to access from the search page. --Mambo Jambo 11:25, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

I agree with you. It's very tedious to have to go to the google page and then there if you can't remember the name. Foxjwill 18:08, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Handling of beta products?[edit]

In what way should inofficial (made by Google of course) products and improvments to current services be handled?

I was wondering as I found a function for the news service, serving the news as "XHTML" for mobiles. [3]

Though there is a large chance that I've just screwed up and that it is in fact the page which is used by the Google Mobile News service, anyone able to confirm either?

Anyway the real question is about the handling of inofficial Google products. --81.216.155.158 15:37, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Maybe put them in a separate section on the page? Foxjwill 18:10, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Google Project Hosting[edit]

Are anyone going to add Google Project Hosting? --ReCover 18:59, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

This is part of the Google Code service. Martin Porcheron 21:23, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Massive cleanup[edit]

Okay, it's taken me pretty much a whole day, but I hope you all like what you see. It's reordered, articles merged, a subtle change in the format, and generally simpler and now should be a recommended file size. Enjoy. --Mambo Jambo 16:42, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

The Google Toolbar had "unknown" under when it launched. I did a little checking, I found the answer here: http://www.google.com/corporate/history.html -- "To extend the power of its keyword-targeted advertising to smaller businesses, Google introduced AdWords, a self-service ad program that could be activated online with a credit card in a matter of minutes. And in late 2000, to enhance users' power to search from anywhere on the web, Google introduced the Google Toolbar. This innovative browser plug-in made it possible to use Google search without visiting the Google homepage, either using the toolbar's search box or right-clicking on text within a web page, as well as enabling the highlighting of keywords in search results. The Google Toolbar would prove enormously popular and has since been downloaded by millions of users." So, I added "Late 2000" Chrisabraham 04:28, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Google Image Search and google Images both link here:[edit]

But I still could find any information about 'em.--Greasysteve13 08:38, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

Image Search is in the list, yes. It was agreed that several pages had to be deleted (here) I didnt think they should be merged into the actual Google search article, as that would have made it messy, so I re-sorted this article. If you believe Image search and others should redirect to the respective page anchor, then feel free to change them. Mambo Jambo 11:12, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

Archive searching[edit]

What is Google's new archive search called? Shimmera

It's called News Archive Search -- I've made it part of the Google News article, and added it to the list. Mambo Jambo 14:18, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Image Labeler[edit]

Google's Image Labeler "game" isn't really a product. Users don't go there seeking information, like they do the rest of Google's products and services. Instead, its just Google saying "help us sort this stuff out," and users provide free labor to Google. In the long run, it might be beneficial if these tags are added to the images in G's index as meta data, but on its own, not a product. </rant> ZimZalaBim (talk) 14:22, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Who produced Image Labeler? Google. Therefore, it's a product from Google. No? --Mambo Jambo 23:09, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Sitelinks?[edit]

Perhaps the Sitelinks section might be better in Google search, maybe under a new heading called Features. Try it out. --Mambo Jambo 09:54, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

Merge Writely & Spreadsheets[edit]

I think Writely and Spreadsheets should be merged in the "Docs and Spreadsheets" row. I was not sure so I haven't done it yet but I think it should be done.Pongo489 05:17, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

I did this yesterday, after seeing the proposal. --Mambo Jambo 21:11, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
At the beginning, the article mentions :"This list also includes previous products (excluding name changes) of ones that have either been merged or discarded." So, it lists Writely as a service that was. I think that some distinction should be made for past Google services and current ones. Also, as a user posted above, something should be done to handle the beta products. --ase 13:42, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
My mistake, I didn't actually merge the listings on this page. I merged the actual Writely article itself. As for this list article, I was the one who wrote its introduction. Perhaps, if some people agree, we should make it just for current Google products? As for the handling of beta products, we could have a reordering of headings called "Gold", "Beta" and "Labs", which would nicely refer to the list's introduction. --Mambo Jambo 16:10, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
I agree with the idea. But i think we should consider the headings order: are we ordering first by the service status ("Gold", "Beta" and "Labs") or by the current service categories? Or do we just label in the list each service with its GBP status? I would like to hear people's thoughts.--ase 20:20, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

Headings in the list[edit]

What do people think the headings should be in the list? The ones I put on are only temporary. Perhaps, in the Web Applications section, have "For Site Owners" (things like Webmaster Tools etc.), "For Developers" (Google Code), and "For General Use".

What do you reckon? --Mambo Jambo 20:51, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Old products section[edit]

Instead of listing old products with the active products I think they should be seperate in a section at the end of the page. I think name changes should also be included in the list. Martin Porcheron 15:41, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

That's quite a good idea. If you're going to do it, remember Compute and Writely, and perhaps make a new Spreadsheets row. Call it "old", "former" or "past" products (something like that). --Mambo Jambo 22:17, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Jokes[edit]

Google Moon is a joke. Zoom in all the way to see what I mean. I left a little note next to it.

Google Moon contains a joke yes, we all know that. But the whole product isn't a joke. That's just trivial information that belongs in the main article, not this concise list. --Mambo Jambo 15:27, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

Jotspot[edit]

Google has just acquired Jotspot (a wiki) someone might wanna put it up. - Pongo489 21:14, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi, Wikipedia is the encyclopedia that anyone can edit. I have added JotSpot, but in the future you may add or change anything to deem to be helpful. Thanks for the prompt though (i forgot about checking to see if it was added). Martin Porcheron 22:01, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

Google Code Products (should they be removed?)[edit]

On the list we have:

  • Google Code Search
  • Google Web API
  • Google Web Toolkit

These are all "sub-products" of the Google Code product. While they in themselves are products we need to either add all Google APIs (unrealistic) or have none. Same goes for the Code Search, while it is a seperate product in the sense of it, it is still part of Google Code.

What do you think? Martin Porcheron 22:12, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

Update by Martin Porcheron: By this is also imply their respective pages as well (ie. The Google Web API page to be merged into the Google Code page. Martin Porcheron 22:17, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

Yes I agree with pretty much all of that. Funny, I was just thinking the same thing (like, what about the Data APIs?) But, however, I do think that Code Search should stay. It's the only one that is not library or API-related. If needs be, it could be placed under the Search heading. --Mambo Jambo 23:57, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
Okay, these should all be done now. I've created an "APIs" row to the products list, because I think it's necessary to distinguish them slightly. Also, the Google Code article will probably need quite a cleanup now. --Mambo Jambo 23:50, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Mobile products[edit]

I am planning on starting to add some mobile products to the list (seeing as we have desktop and online). I have exams at the moment however so if someone else wants to start it be my guest. I'll try and help when I can. Martin Porcheron 18:28, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

Too Long?[edit]

Is this article too long (as well as too many KB)? I'm starting to like it at the moment, with all the new products etc, but perhaps it's not very readable for people who are new to the article...

Is there any way we could split it up... I can't think of a way, myself. --Mambo Jambo 15:43, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

I agree with the readability issues, i think it's because of the ammount of information crammed into the table. However, unlike other company product lists we need to provide some info (a line or two) on all the products because not all the products have their own seperate wiki pages.

We could split them up in to types of products (differnet pages), eg, List of Google programs, List of Google websites and List of Google mobile products. Martin Porcheron need help? just ask! 21:18, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Google Talk[edit]

Shouldn't the Google Talk service be also listed? Currently, only the Google Talk client is listed under the Windows section, but the service on itself is also accessible by other Jabber/XMPP software on other platforms and thus not only accessible on Windows only, nor by Google software only. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by NaturalBornKiller (talkcontribs) 16:09, 24 December 2006 (UTC).

Perhaps mention the service inside the Google Talk summary, instead. Mambo Jambo 00:45, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Google Store[edit]

The Google Store is not on the list.

I took it off, along with Google Space and Google Current, because they're not particularly dealing with the "applications" part of Google. It neatens up the list a bit more. I hate having to have "Misc" headings in articles - it's just not user-friendly. But I'm not going to be a power freak, so add it in if you wish. Mambo Jambo 00:45, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Different layout[edit]

Hi,

The current version of the article is getting quite large and difficult to read and therfore, taking an idea that MamboJambo did a while ago I've created a proper list format version.

You can find the draft list in my user area. I was wondering if anyone has any objections to making the change. If you want to change something on the draft then go ahead! Thanks, Martin Porcheron need help? just ask! 17:50, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

I was wondering when you would be persuaded towards the list! :-) Yes, I think it's definately easier to read. I'm just about to make some changes to the draft - mainly to the headings. Mambo Jambo 21:01, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
I've decided I don't like the idea of having a Mobile Products section. I think it's rather pointless. Instead, they should be mentioned in the related main articles. It makes the list unnecessarily longer. Mambo Jambo 21:01, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
Do you want to make it live or me? Martin Porcheron need help? just ask! 19:35, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
Okay, I've just made the final changes. Feel free to publish it. Well done! Mambo Jambo 23:04, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Done, it's about 7,000KBs smaller than the previous design (which was over 30KB). Martin Porcheron need help? just ask! 22:00, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Strict filtering of words by Google Suggest[edit]

I noticed that some common words are filtered by Google Suggest, such as sexually offensive "fuck". What other kind of words are filtered? I was surprised to see the word "black" filtered. Is there any option to disable filtering for us who prefer it uncensored? 213.100.22.50 14:38, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Google News[edit]

Shouldn't Google News be in 'Aggregation'? Now is in 'Search'. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 83.6.210.203 (talk) 14:05, 18 February 2007 (UTC).

Debatable, but I'd say keep it as it is. For example, you use Google News to SEARCH for news content (even though the latest news is there), but the likes of Google Reader is much more precise and customised in what you want - it's an aggregator of web feeds. Mambo Jambo 16:58, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

GCheckout is in "Search"[edit]

IMHO Google Checkout isn't searching service. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 83.6.253.8 (talk) 02:19, 25 February 2007 (UTC).

I put it in search. I don't think it belongs there either, but Google says it is. It's under search on this page... [4] --Mambo Jambo 13:38, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Is Blogsearch missing?[edit]

I'm new here and I can see there has been a lot of discussion, but I don't see anything about Blogsearch. Am I just not finding it, or have I missed something? --TMH 23:26, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, I think you've missed it. It's in the Search section, under "B". Mambo Jambo 21:26, 20 March 2007 (UTC)


Format for links[edit]

I see a edit war breaking out over the format of the links. Let's discuss it first. The current format is inline links.

  • Keep This is the sort of page where the utility of the page is in the convenience and the descriptiveness of the links. The links are not footnotes but integral to the article content. patsw 17:04, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Keep for same reason as above Mambo Jambo 16:35, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Re: Mobile Products[edit]

I believe we should add Mobile products to the list because they make the list complete, we currently have desktop, online and hardware products, so why not mobile? This list is meant to be a list of [all] Google products. Martin Porcheron need help? just ask! 10:03, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Go for it Martin! I'll let you this time, lol. No, you're totally right, mobile is the next big thing for Google, so we may as well make it obvious. Mambo Jambo 18:52, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

New iGoogle article?[edit]

Do you think iGoogle needs its own article? There's now more features, such as Community Gadgets and themes, and clearer background information. Think it's about time? Mambo Jambo 23:30, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

I have put a merge proposal on the Igoogle, IGoogle, and List of Google products pages.

Bballoakie 22:50, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

I don't think it does, iGoogle, in the words of Google, isn't really a product as such and more of a "feature". There really isn't all that much to talk about with regards to iGoogle Martin Porcheron need help? just ask! 16:45, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, you're right. It's definately one of the smaller Google products out there. Anyone fancy doing the merger? Mambo Jambo 23:14, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

I don't think IGoogle needs it's own page. Computerguru7 00:47, 4 May 2007 (UTC)


I think the merge tags should be removed, this article has enough about iGoogle already, and at most a few more sentences can be added. Whether to keep iGoogle is perhaps an issue for an AfD. --Merzul 12:18, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

WP:AfD says "Consider making the page a useful redirect or proposing it be merged rather than deleted. Neither of these actions requires an AfD.". Deleting this article is the wrong decision, it should be redirected/merged into List of Google products. It seems to be the concenus that we don't need a seperate article so i'm going to merge them. Martin Porcheron need help? just ask! 17:28, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
Good. You're right! Thank you for doing it! :) I will put back the section anchor, and this issue should be done and over with. --Merzul 22:23, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

Feature Article[edit]

I was just curious... do you think this article could ever be put forward as a featured article? Is the content useful enough; what can be done to improve it? Mambo Jambo 23:16, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

You mean Featured List. I think that of the criteria, the only potential problem I think is 1(c), as this article doesn't cite its sources. There are some claims here that would require backing up. --Merzul 12:13, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

Reputable sources[edit]

Can anyone recommend reputable sources, apart from the official Google blog, so we can start adding some references to this list? Mambo Jambo 17:48, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Google Pinyin is standalone[edit]

Google Pinyin isn't an IE plugin, as stated. Maybe there's another version I don't know about, but it's a... Windows extension? 87.228.4.66 09:06, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Although it may not run in IE it does require IE to be run. See [5] under the list of requirements. Martin Porcheron need help? just ask! 11:02, 12 June 2007 (UTC)
There have been standalone win32 apps that put IE in their requirements list, ex. Kaspersky_Anti-Virus#System_requirements. As an Input method, Google Pinyin is standalone. Zat'n'ktel (talk) 07:56, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Google Otvety (Answers) Beta[edit]

Reborn of Google Answers, only in Russian. From Russian Google blog: http://googlerussiablog.blogspot.com/2007/06/google.html --ajvol 14:15, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

redirect[edit]

Why is there a redirect page from google suggest?! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ygb6147 (talkcontribs).

Because there is not enough information for a seperate article. Martin Porcheron talk to memy edits 14:58, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

GOOG-411[edit]

What about GOOG-411? That's not on the list.

O2mcgovem 16:02, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

google adwords print[edit]

why is google adwords print ads (http://www.google.com/adwords/printads/index.html) not listed? it seems like worth noting! --78.128.199.9 (talk) 21:52, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Google Gadget Ads[edit]

I think that Google's widget based ads (http://www.google.com/adwords/gadgetads/index.html) should be mentioned under the advertising section. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ebness86 (talkcontribs) 00:11, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Abstract[edit]

Este trabalho aborda a incidência do cãncer de colo de útero no município de Marituba no período de 2005 a 2006, por meio de um estudo descritivo documental retrospectivo, com o objetivo de analisar aspectos epidemiológicos e citopatológicos relacionados ao câncer de colo de útero. Na análise estatística foi calculada a freqüência das variáveis definidas, número total de coletas no município, número de 1ª vez, número de gestantes, pacientes em controle, resultado negativo para células neoplásicas, citologia inflamatória, número de NIC I, II, III, carcinoma in situ, carcinoma epidermóide, adenocarcinoma, células neoplásicas e o número de coletas insatisfatórias. A casuística foi de 13.676 mulheres que foram submetidas ao exame do Papanicolau no período de estudo. Entre as mulheres estudadas, observou-se com esta análise a importância do estudo epidemiológico do câncer do colo do útero. Pois o município necessita de açõrs em Saúde Pública para implementar o diagnóstico precoce, identificando alterações citopatológicas, dando o tratamento correto para cada tipo de lesão ginecológica. Com essas ações, como o Programa de controle do câncer cérvico uterino (PCCU), haverá redução da incidência de câncer do colo do útero, assim como sua mortalidade —Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.13.239.227 (talk) 03:05, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Google Doctype[edit]

I suggest that a mention of Google Doctype be added. http://code.google.com/doctype/ " Google Doctype is an open encyclopedia and reference library. Written by web developers, for web developers. It includes articles on web security, JavaScript DOM manipulation, CSS tips and tricks, and more. The reference section includes a growing library of test cases for checking cross-browser and cross-platform compatibility.

Lively in Wrong Section?[edit]

Lively is under Web Products (accessed by Browser), when it is more of a download. Should it be moved? Jerr (talk) 06:03, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Lively is actually being discontinued (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2008/11/lively-no-more.html) and should be moved to previous products, I never used it but I feel bad for the people who do. Google may be a reliable company as in they will always be out there but I'm finding it harder to rely on some of their products but I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that gmail and iGoogle will always be there. --DrM4rio (talk) 18:10, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Recently, the alpha for Chrome has been released for Mac and Linux, I have several sources cited:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/scienceandtechnology/technology/google/5454080/Google-Chrome-comes-to-the-Apple-Mac.html, http://www.macworld.com/article/140998/2009/06/chromemac.html, and here are the download sites for mac:http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/eula_dev.html?dl=mac,linux:i386: http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/eula_dev.html?dl=unstable_i386_deb, and AMD64:http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/eula_dev.html?dl=unstable_amd64_deb. I acknowledge that these are alpha releases and not entirely stable, but they are chrome releases nonetheless.--Austinbparker (talk) 18:07, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Firefox a de-facto-Google-product[edit]

Google is with 85 % of years income of the Mozilla Foundation by far the most important sponsor, but sponsorship doesn't equal ownership. It's akin to saying GM owns a newspaper because the car company is the biggest advertiser.

GDrive / Google Drive[edit]

Just wondering why it isn't on this article. Seems to be enough credible sources on the net to at least be listed with maybe (under development) next to the listed entry? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 149.254.218.39 (talk) 12:04, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Building Maker[edit]

I just added Building Maker to the list, but would it be more appropriate in "Publishing" with SketchUp, than Mapping with MapMaker/Google Earth? 80.6.152.186 (talk) 10:57, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Posted some information about GBM here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Google_Building_Maker
Hopefully someone can sort out an article for it? TigerTails (talk) 17:37, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Google Hardware - CR-48 Mario[edit]

Google is testing its Chrome OS (which, btw, doesn't seem to be listed anywhere in the article) and is giving away these notebooks. (see here http://www.google.com/chromeos/pilot-program-cr48.html). Even though these machines are not commercially available, they're still designed and distributed directly by Google. I'm thinking of adding it to the hardware list. any thoughts/objections?

Should Needlebase be added to the list?[edit]

Hey all, this is my first talk page post. On April 12, 2011, Google acquired ITA software, which runs a web scraper called Needlebase[1]. Under the specified criteria of "released or acquired by Google Inc", should this service be added to this list?

Takeout[edit]

The page that we reach when we click the word "Takeout", listed as one of the Google services, is not a page about the Google service. I think there's a mistake with the link. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.44.232.145 (talk) 20:15, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

New "candidates"[edit]

Motorola Mobility should probably add to the list. --Stryn (talk) 18:11, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Ok, it's added. Then Zagat and Frommers. --Stryn (talk) 17:15, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Unmentioned Products[edit]

  • Google Developers – There should be an article about this product.
  • Google Store is an online store for accessories having the logos of Google's products. I once saw a link for that on Google.com, for some reason I can't find it now. This site is owned by a company named "Brand Addition".
  • Other products which have an article, but not mentioned here: Google Storage, Google Ventures.
