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 $1 trillion market capitalization. That’s the stats of Google.
First Published: September 26, 2016; Last Updated: Friday, February 19, 2021.Amazon ($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.
The Fantastic Hundred WebsitesWhether you're a student, a professional, or a homemaker, I have hand-picked one hundred most useful websites for you --- to get things done, or to spend time with, or to find something interesting. And no, it doesn't include the Facebooks and Amazons of the world.
1. Chrome Remote DesktopChrome 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.
