Google recently launched its new competitor to Facebook, dubbed Google+. It's very similar to FB, but less cluttered and more easily organized. It also adds a new toolbar to the Google search page and other Google product pages; this toolbar adds buttons to access Google+ and to view G+ updates. Check it out!

Google Squared

Here's something really cool, currently in testing in Google Labs. Google Squared takes your search query and parses the key results in tabular format. It's great for comparing product features and other types of information. For example, when you enter "blu-ray dvd player" you get a comparison chart of different models, features, prices, and so forth. It's still a work in progress, but worth checking out.
