Now, in addition to searching the Web, you can also upload and store your photos on Picasa, organise your schedule on Google Calendar, take a look at the world from a different perspective with Google Earth and even find your own street on Google Maps. Finding your street on Google Maps is simple; you can even "walk" down your block and see other neighbours' homes.
