Hi
You can find many many many Google Modules on Google Base.

Tom, we've tried looking for some, and took all that had screenshots (on Sunday).

A good idea...hopefully it'll catch on and you'll have lots of user-created modules!

I found a ToDo List ;)
base.google.com/base/items?oid ...
I tried to translate this in French, for me, but I crash the module...

And I'm triying to give you a IP resolution module... It work when I use a page php hosted on my server, but I tried to make it directly in the XML page, without an other page.
If it work I'll send you the file ;)

It's a sweet idea, but the Privacy policy leaves something to be be desired. One can't tell, particularly with the dialog box one has to OK from google: "You are about to add a feature that was not created by Google. Preference settings and other information you enter in order to use this feature may be available to the feature's provider. Do you wish to continue?"

seems to indicate either the module maker, or googlemodules, or both, will then be able to track information on the users personalised site.

You need to trust the module maker, yes. Google will include an inline frame which resides on Gmodules.com or the module makers server (depending on the setting in the XML). So if you e.g. enter a password into the module, the module maker might be able to read it, as he might process it. In the case of a module which is included inline – which is not possible at the moment for modules created outside the Googleplex – then there's also the chance to combine the data gathered in the module with other Google data, because then the code resides at Google.com. However at the moment, to my knowledge, it's not possible for a module maker outside of Google to read any Google settings (because of the different domains used for Gmodules.com and Google.com).
