Get ready for Google Laundry

Tony Ruscoe, a programmer who became famous (in the blogosphere at least) for discovering the Google Base domain before the search company launched it, was poking around in Google’s attic again and found some new potential services that Google seems to have waiting in the wings, including Google Real Estate, Google Guess, Google Events and Google Weaver. Here are some other services that Google, the company with attention deficit disorder (or is that “diversify at all costs” disorder?) is reportedly working on:

  • Google Laundry (email a request, clothes are shipped FedEx)
  • Google Shoe-Size Estimator (still in beta)
  • Google Change (send in your coins and get Google Checkout credits)
  • Google Calculator (with sine and cosine functions, naturally)
  • Google Lawn-Care (only available in San Francisco)
  • Google Timekeeper (a virtual desktop clock)
  • Google Therapy (a version of Alice the chat-bot)

Isn’t the Googleverse a wonderful place to live? On an unrelated note, how many kids with ADD does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Answer: Hey, let’s go ride bikes!
