Well, not to hard this one... Definately Google Maps / Google Earth. So many new oppurtunities for company's and Google Earth is just cool to use, even if you don't use it to gain money...

What's yours DaveN?

Sitemaps. It is such a positive step in the right direction for all concerned!

Anything goes (from labs and grads?), here are my favorites:

Google Maps
Google Analytics
Google Video
Google Ride Finder (obviously needs a lot more in its dbase)
Google Base
Google Earth
Google Blog Search
Picasa 2
Google's FREE Sitemaps
Google Talk
Google Local (in other parts of the world besides US)

The Google Jet... if they give away rides for free

And who could complain with .... FREE WiFi ... hope that gets to my local town soon

Maps!

I'm gonna have to go with Maps/Earth, for two reasons:
- when was the last time you spent hours looking up where you grew up, cities around the word, or where your grandparents lived?
- just like last year when Gmail kicked a lot of other web mail providers into high gear and made things better for users with more storage or a better UI, Maps did the same thing for local search/mapping.

Plus, once we rolled out the Maps api, people could mash-up whatever data they wanted and display it in a neat way.

Google Maps/Earth for me because I can see aerial footage of Disneyland!

However, I don't think the program is entirely up to date because when I viewed my own home, it did not show the swimming pool I put in two years ago.
