The other day on my way to work I saw a Google Maps car (for the second time in NZ I might add), and it reminded me of this post I’ve been meaning to write for a while now.

I have mentioned my love for Google toys before and now there’s another one! Old news for some I’m sure, but in general such good news/olds that it cannot be repeated too much. Google Wave is here, and apparently it will revolutionise the way we email. My friend sent me an invite s0 I’ve been playing around with it a little over the last week or so. It’s pretty cool, but I’m not sure – it will take a bit to get used to it. As it’s still being developed it’s not perfect, but as soon as more people start using it I’m sure I get a better picture. I’m still really impressed with its potential and love the way your conversations can be played back for you.

You can have a look at Google’s  (very long) presentation here:


Even though I haven’t written here in ages, I’ve been pottering along with various projects and, well, just plain old daily life. A while ago I ventured into Ravelry, which has been great, and has introduced me to some interesting new people and more lovely knitting and crafting than I could ever had dreamt of. Many other knitters are also in Flickr, but I have resisted so far, much because of being such a Google fanatic and Picasa addict. But I have been convinced and am now also to be found on yet another social website thingy:

I know I’m not the only fan! From finding information (hence the new verb ‘to google smth’ and the acronym JFGI), via Gmail, Reader and Picasa, to my newest find: Google Documents – I heart Google! Let me explain more about my (near) newfound love.

My computer’s hard disk has recently developed a nasty case of overfilledness and has turned red – where am I going to put all the wonderful patterns I download (which is probably taking up most of the space)? Eureka! An additional bonus is that it is now available to me from wherever I might be. Handy for our future plans.

My darling husband tells me that the future might bring us online storage in the form of GDRIVE. Sign me up!
