Your Googleplex Guide: Tips for Google Buzz, Voice, and Wave

Keeping up with Google’s appetite for innovation and world domination can be a full time job. In the last year, the company acquired the mobile advertising company AdMob, photo editing site Picnik, e-mail search utility reMail, and Office file sharing service DocVerse. The company also recently launched Buzz, a social networking tool out to kill Foursquare, Twitter, and Yelp in one fell swoop. Then there’s Wave, a much-hyped collaboration tool, and a new feature for Google Docs that provides free unlimited online backup of e-mail, documents, and photos.

If any of those programs sound overwhelming, you’re not alone. That’s why we decided to sift through Google’s latest services, features, and experiments to help you make the most out of the search giant’s ever-growing ambitions.

You can find our exhaustive guides to the  following Google services below.

  • Google Buzz
    As Google’s answer to Twitter, Buzz lets users do a lot more than just post updates.
  • Google Voice
    Google Voice lets you make free domestic calls and cheap international ones from your desktop.
  • Google Wave
    Equal parts Google Docs, Google Chat, and Gmail, Wave is a workspace where people can collaborate on projects in real time.
