Over 271 Google Products & Services You Probably Don’t Know

First Published: July 24, 2009; Last Updated: Thursday, March 4, 2021.

Google may be a synonym for search, but it’s not restricted to that feature alone. If you are not a tech-savvy person then chances are that you are unaware about majority of Google’s products and services.

Anyway, how many Google products and services do you use? The common answers will be Gmail, Google Drive, Google Maps, Google Chrome, YouTube, or an Android. But Google is well beyond that.

Over 3 billion Google Searches per day. Over 1 billion YouTube users. Over 1 billion Gmail users. Over 1 billion Chrome users. Over 1 billion Maps users. Over 1 billion Google Photos users. Over 2 billion Android users. Over 1 billion Google Play Store users. Over $1 trillion market capitalization. That’s the stats of Google.

Over 91 Amazon Products & Services You Probably Don’t Know

All Things Amazon

First Published: September 26, 2016; Last Updated: Friday, February 19, 2021.

Amazon ($AMZN) is the largest retailer on the web. I'm not an Amazon fanatic but I like to shop online (or on Amazon). And I believe Amazon will become a lot more bigger than what it is today. For me Amazon was all about online shopping and shopping only until a few years go, and then I came to know about its dominance in the cloud computing space. That's how I became curious and made a plan to list all its products and services and app (or this very blog post). So today, I’m listing all the products and services and apps by Amazon. And I will be updating this article as they launch more products and services.

Forget Content Marketing, Let’s Focus On Content Curation

Curate

A content curator is someone who aggregates content from across the web. They're not the ones who copy stuff from the Internet and repost the same on social media, blogs, etc. Content curators are passionate about what they share and hence they “curate” content before sharing by adding more information and value to it.

Content Curation is different from Content Creation because curators don’t generate any significant content by themselves. Their primary goal is to find interesting stuff and then re-publish the same by adding their own views about the content.

21 Content Curation Tools That You Never Thought You’d Need

Mac

If content marketing is all about creating and sharing your own content then content curation is all about finding, organizing, and sharing great content. Content curators aggregate interesting content from across the web about topics that they’re passionate about.

Today, Content Curation is as important as content marketing as it’s a great way to improve the user experience of your website and/or brand. Moreover, content marketing is not easy as creating high quality content is expensive and takes a lot of effort and time.

Read: Forget Content Marketing, Let’s Focus On Content Curation

Why Content Curation Matters?

Content Curation is not something that can be automated because no computer algorithm can find exactly what your users want. So it’s your job to find interesting content what you think will be of interest to your readers.

The 100+ Most Useful Websites For (Almost) Anyone And Everyone

Google search, Bing search, or Yahoo search. But have you ever tried the DuckDuckGo search? It's a search engine that doesn't track you and has everything (like suggestions, image search, video search, etc.) you expect from a search engine. There's a very good chance that we end up using only the most popular websites on the web because they are just everywhere. However, it doesn't really mean that they're the best websites on the Internet. Needless to say, "popular" isn't necessarily the best. And that's how I decided to come up with a list of extremely useful (and probably less-known) websites on the web.

3 Best Of The Best Free Remote Desktop Access Software

There was a time when I (and probably you) struggled with Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop software on a Windows PC to remotely access someone else's computer. It was a terrible experience and never worked for me as it involved quite a few network settings and protocols --- which I still don't understand much. And there were few free and premium remote desktop connection managers like LogMeIn, GoToMyPC, etc. at that time. But I was least interested in trying those remote desktop connection managers as it was of no use to me. Then, with the advent of the smartphone era, I tried remote desktop apps for mobile like Splashtop, PocketCloud, LogMeIn, Join.me, and TeamViewer, etc. and almost all of them failed to impress me. It was simply not the kind of productivity apps that I wanted or even care about. My impression completely changed when Microsoft and Google introduced their own Remote Desktop apps for web and mobile a few years back. The good thing is... both works perfect and is free without any restriction. So here is a quick review (plus comparison) of the 3 (and only 3) best remote desktop access software that are free.

1. Chrome Remote Desktop

Chrome Remote Desktop is a Google Chrome app that lets you access all your computer(s) from another computer or from your mobile device(s). It can be used for a variety of purposes like to access your own computer from a remote location or to provide (or get) remote support or to securely access your files or software applications on your computer from a mobile device, and so on. What I really like about Chrome Remote Desktop is that it's linked to your Google account. So there's no such thing as an extra user id or special codes to access your computer from another device of yours. And the installation and setup is pretty simple. All you need to do is install the Chrome Remote Desktop app on all your devices (computers, tablets, mobiles) and you're good to go.

Over 101 Microsoft Products, Services, & Apps You Probably Don’t Know

Microsoft Products I have always wanted to list all the Microsoft products and services (just like I did Google's). But Microsoft's products are really diverse in nature and a good percentage of them are actually targeting companies and business users. Therefore I found it difficult to list all the products in an organized way. Microsoft's products were mostly desktop applications until a few years ago. Now things have changed substantially and Microsoft has been launching a lot of standalone web and mobile apps for individual consumers. This is why I (finally!) decided to list all the Microsoft products and services.

Elon Musk. Tesla. SpaceX. The future. Future thinker Elon Musk is undoubtedly one of the best inventors of our times.

These are the companies founded/co-founded by Elon Musk

I'm a hardcore user of PayPal but I didn’t know anything about Elon Musk until I come across the term “PayPal Mafia”. "PayPal Mafia" is a term used to indicate a group of former PayPal employees and founders who have since founded and developed additional technology companies.

I was super-impressed, when I realized that some of the best dot com companies were in one way or the other founded/co-founded by the “PayPal Mafia”. It includes YouTube, LinkedIn, Yammer, Yelp, Facebook, Digg, Flickr, Technorati, Reddit, Xoom, and so on. In fact, the PayPal Mafia plays an important role in the rise of Web 2.0.
