[TIPS] Google Experimental

I just happened to stumbled into the Google labs tonight and I played around with some of the new tools that they are working on. http://www.google.com/experimental/

Try the timeline. I thought this had great potential. In the google search field, try something like: Abraham Lincoln view:timeline

Or, iraq war view:timeline.

You'll get a visual timeline with markers on it to reflect the number of articles in that year. Click on a year in the timeline of on the articles themselves.

Or how about this one: http://www.google.com/webhp?hl=en&complete=1 Start to type a search word and it offers suggestions to autocomplete your entry.

I still like the timeline one the best. A nice tool for education.

Jim,
I learn so much from you. I was playing around with the timeline view and noticed the mapview right next to it. Click on mapview and you see the place associated with each timeline entry.
very cool!
