Every day, a new toy to devour my time.

Much of the night, I was playing about with Google Sets, which is both fascinating and useful. Enter up to five things in the search boxes, and the engine will attempt to expand your list with related items. Each name in the list is a link to a google search on that name. Obviously very useful in expanding your knowledge of a subject.

But, this would also be great at those times when you can't quite remember the name of someone famous, but you know the names of several other people in the same field. Enter their names in the boxes, and there is a good chance that the person you're trying to remember will pop up on the list.

Google comes up with so much neat stuff! I wish I had more time to play with it all.
