Google Maps: Flu Shots

We like the free airport Wi-Fi, but Google Maps gets put to more practical (and healthy) uses: the Flu Shot Finder helps you track down seasonal and H1N1 flu shots in your neighborhood.

DJ in the Googleplex: Google Music integrates jams into its search results, letting you play and buy full tracks from sources that include iLike, Lala, Imeem, Rhapsody and Pandora.

Map Marker Death Tee

Map Marker Death Tee

This Map Marker Death t-shirt pointedly shows the hazards of overly augmenting reality; up next: street view dude’s mangled body found flying across random street intersections.

Google Wave x Pulp Fiction

Google Wave x Pulp Fiction

NSFW: Still can’t wrap your noggin’ around Google Wave? This Pulp Fiction mashup by Joe Sabia should “bang” some sense into your head; it’s basically chat with 72 point font and pictures.

Google Streetview Guys

Google Streetview Guys

We normally jump at the chance for a roadtrip, but Google Streetview Guys is the antithesis of Harold & Kumar: no male bonding, no burgers, and no foreseeable end in sight.

Blending old world style with new world tech, Bill Guffey’s Google Street View Art may seem worldly but is painted entirely from his home in rural Kentucky; yes, Google says it’s okay.

Google Japan: Streetview

Google Japan: Streetview

Likely an effort to assuage privacy concerns, Google Japan definitely has the market cornered on cute with this stop motion TV ad; it shows how Google Maps’ Streetview is really made.

Jokes about Google’s monopolistic tendencies aside, this mashup between Hasbro and the Googleplex has us intrigued: Monopoly City Streets will use Google Maps as a virtual board.

Funny: Google Opt-Out

Funny: Google Opt-Out

The Onion’s Google Opt-Out is a brilliant take on bureaucratic double speak: Google knocks you so far off grid you can forget about basic sanitation, medical care or escape.

Guess The Google

Guess The Google

Guess the Google is simple but surprisingly addictive game that presents an array of images which you’ll need to guess the search term for; it’s pretty finicky, so get your spelling right.

Google Autonomobile

Google Autonomobile

Not content to dominate Microsoft, Google’s Autonomobile takes on the car makers and takes out the driver: there’s no steering wheel or brakes, although it ironically includes a bar.

Google Chrome OS

Google Chrome OS

A shot across Microsoft’s bow, Google Chrome OS will run on x86 and ARM chips with a focus on web-based apps; it’ll be open sourced this year, with consumers getting it 2H 2010.

Microsoft’s Bing “decision” engine has done fairly well, but Googling with Bing puts into perspective a certain 800 pound gorilla in Silicon Valley that is synonymous with search.

Video: Google Holodeck

Seen at Google I/O, the Google Holodeck shows Street View at high speed; it gives viewers the illusion of motion, which is fun as long as the safety protocols don’t go offline.

Tough to describe but nifty to use, Google Wave isn’t public yet; it’s essentially a real-time, open-source communications hub which mashes up chat, social networking, wikis and more.

Google Chrome 2

Now available: Google Chrome 2 throws in a few nice features like autofill and a more flexible tab page, but stays true to its speedy roots by boosting JavaScript performance by 30%.

Website: Stweet.com

Website: Stweet.com

It has some stability issues, but we like how Stweet.com mashes up Twitter and Google Maps; it uses street views to lend even more of a voyeuristic quality to live tweets.
