Google brought on Froogle to help shoppers find the best price and where to buy. Froogle some how lost the name in 2002 and is now just known as Google Shopping or Google Product Search. Image search, Google's had that since 2001. When blogs were becoming new and cool. Google's like "Arr we need that too" and aquires the company that created Blogger.
They got in a little trouble with it over content ownership or something like that but Google News is still present and accounted for. Google didn't quite have the world mapped out yet for their domination, oh wait ya they did. Google had maps, addresses and driving directions covered. Google Maps blew Mapquest out of the water.
Google also has Picasa, so you can upload your photos online, Google Checkout so you can buy items from sites and actually pay through Google. Google owns this Google owns that, and wait, how about flu trends, who's covering that. The CDC right. Can google overtake the Center For Disease control, well maybe not tonight but Google does offer a cute website called Google Flu Trends that tracks flu activity.
