The wam.google.com subdomain has been discussed on this forum before. We seem to think it's something to do with Google Desktop:

blogoscoped.com/archive/2006-0 ...

I'm not sure what kickit2.google.com could be for though – I saw this on Netcraft the other day and added it to my list of subdomains (which, by the way, I try to keep up to date as much as possible):
