Announced last week at Google Searchology, "Google Squared" seems to be close to launch! The URL had been an "Error" but now resolves to a page that says:

"Google Squared – Coming Soon

Google Squared will be coming soon. For now, why not have fun squaring some numbers?"

Is checking the source the first thing you do for everything? :P
(I only looked at the source after your post ;))

"Through archival recordings, he relates the story of a race of hyper-intelligent pan-dimensional beings who built a computer named Deep Thought to calculate the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything. When the answer was revealed to be 42, Deep Thought had predicted that another computer, more powerful than itself would be made and designed by it to calculate the question for the answer. (Later on, referencing this, Adams would create the 42 Puzzle, a puzzle which could be approached in multiple ways, all yielding the answer 42.)"

Also, building 42 at GooglePlex is where ES's office is located I believe...
