Undoubtedly I would have to say that Google has provided so many things for the consumer at no direct cost. Take in to consideration some of the older things like Google Text Search, Google information (goog 411), Google Maps, and Google Earth. Then add some of the newer technologies such as the Chrome browser, Android, and Google+. How can you say anything else? :-) The other day my phone (Android) sent me and all of the other Android based phones in my area, an alert telling us that we had some very severe flash flood weather coming our way. I had no idea at the time, but started making preparations due to the fact that I have a low-lying area around my home. Awesome!
