some special google charts; Interactive charts;Organizational Chart; use the spreadsheet as a data base; google docs;time-series
just do it:

Interactive charts
use interactive charts AND use the spreadsheet as a data base (if you change any of the data relevant to this chart in your spreadsheet, the chart will update automatically. You don't need to repeat the steps above to edit this chart).

Organizational Chart
An organizational chart that supports selection.
List all group members in one column of your spreadsheet, and their hierarchical or higher-level relationship in the next column. If you want a tooltip to appear when you point your mouse to each node, you can enter this text in a third column.

very good example of google fusion table.

google take out: save your Google Profile, stream, +1s, Contacts and circles, Picasa web album, and Voice (and the deprecated buzz service)

Google has launched a new web service entitled Takeout. Take-out is food purchased at a restaurant for the purpose of being eaten elsewhere. This is the same! 
Facebook is not the only online place you store valuable data. You also have important information stored in your Google Profile, stream, +1s, Contacts and circles, Picasa web album, and Voice (and the deprecated buzz service). If want a backup of these online information, take-out is a perfect "one-click service". With Google Takeout, voice mail messages are exported as MP3s, text messages as microformatted HTML, and forwarding phone numbers as a vCard. 
The data is compressed into a ZIP archive and made available for download.

geo-letters; google maps; interesting app.

Many of the "letters" were found by spending endless hours looking at Google Maps.
But recently it has received lots of help from the user community, and the quality of the letters keeps getting better and better...
