If there's ONE thing you could have from Google this week, what would it be? It has to be an improvement on a current product... (not the obvious Gdrive answer)

I'd go for Google Bookmarks with Browser Sync synchronization.

Most Wanted! Google Money.

I think Google Money should be the current product. It is not Google Checkout, it is real US dollars that belong to Google, maybe Google can share some for us. Not so bad. Hm...

I want something like what Tony Ruscoe says... some kind of sycnhronization of Google Calendar with my cellphone's agenda.

You're nuts! Yougle sounds scarry. A little more than Google Web History.
But Goobuntu makes sense. It exists! (look at Wikipedia) O_O
I didn't knew that

I'd like to import all my old Outlook Express mailbox files, so that I can archive them forever and search them whenever I need to. There's www.gmailuploader.com, but I have a feeling that service would leave my inbox in a total mess.

Better revision comparison in Google Docs. Google surely could handily do what MS can't, show you precisely where changes have been made.

(At the moment it's like MS Word's track changes feature, where if you make a change one word in a para the program makes it look like you've changed the whole para.)

Google Talk: Earn as you use

Google pay you to call your friends and family and you earn a lump sum for signing them up new.

That security thingy someone mentioned – Garrett Rogers? – for Gmail: something that lets you know when you (or someone else) last logged in, and how many instances of that account are currently opened.

This could also be more elaborately applied to an email inbox – most useful in Google Apps – that several employees can have simultaneous (and, I hope) collaborative access to.

Also, following on from Mambo's bookmark comment: Google Bookmarks could be more sophisticated, and more integrated with Web History. Google could be suggesting that you bookmark sites that you visit a lot. It would be great to have a Google Readerish way of viewing and rearranging bookmarks and their labels, rather than the current pretty basic interface.

I also want time zone conversion OneBox results... i.e.

[9PM PDT in BST]

or

[1030 CET in GMT]

Quite right. Useful for finding out when the SearchologyTM webcast starts . . .

Which is exactly the reason why I just thought of it! ;-)
