This useful online email is one of the best email providers. An uncluttered email is one of the greatest things for users and Gmail gives a great interface for people. It, like all good things is free. With user intergration with the Iphone and over 500 megabytes of space, it can be considered a great Google product.
4. Google Earth/ Google Maps
These two are two navigational tools. Google Earth is a satellite, free downloadable program whilst Google Maps is a street directory help. Google Earth is more a fun tool and a novelty item, whereas Google Maps is a much more practical online directory. Google Maps is constantly updated around the world giving good clear information and Google Earth is also well up to date. They both incorporate Streetview where you can see photos form a standing perspective of a street giving a more personal and helpful guide.

Google is used by many other website searches but really earns its money through the trillions of ads seen everyday.
