    I just felt like saying that I love Google :). All of their software just continues to amaze me. The personalized homepage is just like a desktop app--you can even drag around columns to reorganize things! The gmail interface so clean, simple, and intuitive and 2 gigs of space is unbelievable. My latest google discovery is google groups. The design, the coverage, the people...it's all great! Google maps, news, froogle, there's just so much great stuff all in one place. Everything just works exactly like you want it to! I can't wait to see what they come up with next...

    Does anyone else feel this way?

    I like playing around with their satellite maps. Finding Area 51 for the first time was pretty fun, as my old manager did some work there once... :cool:

    I like what google has done so far - I just hope they don't get too big of an ego.
    Here's a thread I started a while back...
    Google to save the world?

    And when is Google Earth going to come out for Mac? :mad: :confused:

    Another vote for Google. As ~Shard~ has just mentioned Google Earth is one of the best.

    The only thing Google has failed to do is to fail.

    For the record, Google Earth is not made for Mac, here's what google said...
    "Apple Macintosh computers are not supported at this time (but we are working on it)."
    But the satellite maps are cool.

    Absolutely! More fun than they probably should be, in theory, yet fun nonetheless! ;)

    I just can't wait until Google Earth comes out for Mac, I've played with it on my friends PC and it is much better than the maps, and you can zoom in even more!

    Yeah, I like playing around with it on my PC as well - having it on my Mac would be nice, but is not a necessity...

    Considering how comprehensive the general search engine is, it remains remarkably responsive. It is rare for more than a few seconds to elapse before a lengthy list of relevant items is returned.

    I love Google as a company, just like I love Apple. Except maybe not as much. :p

    Hey, at least it makes my PC feel somewhat useful since I hardly use it anymore thanks to my Mac. ;)

    No save, really, it's the truth. ;) At the start, I used my Mac and PC almost equally, but then as I found more and more apps on my Mac which I could use instead of my Windows apps, and once I purchased Office for Mac, I started having less and less reason to use my PC. And I don't really miss it much either... ;)

    Dear Google,

    Are you CHEATING ON ME?
    I've caught wind of someone named jamdr loving you, too!
    GOOGLE, YOU'RE SUCH A HUSSY!

    Get your stuff out of my apartment! I'll drop it off later!

    -KT

    ---------------
    Yeah, I love google, too! It's made such a HUGE impact in the short time it's been around!
    Mmmm... $200something a share...
    I knew I should have bought some when it came out but NOOO!
    my parents wouldn't let me.
    "they're just a search engine! they won't make money!"
    :mad:

    :( Me too! My dad said that we shouldn't buy it cause "How the hell is Google gonna make money?", I told him that we should buy Apple too, and he said its just been going up awhile, after that its going down. Past 3 months it went up $20/ share, gee.
