My personal feel about Google is that they are trying to be the first contact of everything on the Net. Meaning if you want to do anything on the Net, they want you to go to them first. Hence they been introducing loads of stuff.
One of the sites I like was the Google Map which I post earlier. The other which I find very useful is the Google Translate. Now you may ask, what’s so great about Google Translate? Well I been using other translation sites for ages (love Japanese sites and also sometimes need to translate English to Chinese) and I have to say Google Translate is the best I have used so far.
It can essentially translate a phrase, the whole website or documents. It translate phrases on the fly and has many alternative words are available (especially when translating from English to Chinese). Go on, try it. And let em know what you like or dislike about it.
