Danny Sullivan is a on a blogging role today, he posted on two topics that I felt might interest you.

(1) Googlefone: Fast Way To Use Google's Phone Book (2) Google Releases Picasa 2 Photo Software

In regards to number one, I wanted to see if anyone with the last name "schwartz" was in the Beverly Hills 90210 area. So I did a Google search on schwartz, beverly hills, 90210 and it told me. Plus I was able to get Map Quest or Yahoo Maps within a click of a button. Works well with locating companies as well. There are many ways to use the Google Phonebook, see here for help. In addition, Danny mentions Googlefone which makes it easy to use such a feature, he spotted this at Google Blogoscoped.

On item number two, Google owned Picasa released version two. I am an Apple guy, so I use iPhoto, so no comments from me, instead just a graphic.

Google sent Jonathan a letter demanding that he shut down his site. Read about it on his blog: http://rentzsch.com/suck/googleKillsGooglefone.
