See, what Google needs to do is make the ultimate time waster guide...
Can I do any of this on Google now? No.
Should I?
Yes.
Why? Because wasting time is big business. We spend billions, if not trillions, wasting time. Just ask the travel industry. Or the gaming industry. Or the movie industry. Or the music industry. Or the skiing industry.
And we want to waste time more productively.
This is where Google should play to its strength. They have the infrastructure to connect us to friends who want to help us waste time better. They still have a few people who will code it up. They still understand the web and mobile than most any other company. They still have those funny cars going around making cool maps
Google’s bonus should be based on how well its services have helped me waste my time more productively.
So far Google plays a very small role in helping me waste time, when compared to these newer “social” services

Google has come up with a neat idea that will help them deliver new photo editing features to their Picasa desktop software more quickly while users won’t have to install any updates.
They have integrated Picnik, which is one of the best online image editing apps, with the desktop version of Picasa. That means you can open an image inside Picasa, edit it using Picnik and the change are saved directly to your local disk – all this without leaving Picasa.
Picnik offers a much wider array of image effects and photo-retouching tools and you can now access them all from with Picasa. The integration is nearly perfect and you may not even realize that you are editing photos inside a web-app and not a desktop application. You however need to be online to use the Picnik toolset.
Picnik integration is available in Picasa 3.8 and the software is available for Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.

My colleague Molly Wood called it a privacy nightmare, but to many, Google's new social-networking tool Buzz is at its root an unwanted, unasked for pest. The way some of us see it, we didn't opt in to some newfangled Twitter system and we don't particularly want to see updates from contacts we never asked to follow creep up in our Buzz in-box. Call us what you will, but for curmudgeonly types like us, Buzz isn't so much social networking as it is socially awkward networking. We tried it, we didn't like it, and now it has to go.
Here's how we silenced Buzz from the desktop

Instead of this new addition to our burden of unread messages, they might have found a way to organize what we already get and make it more useful. Maybe they could start by finding ways for us to sort email by importance, instead of by date. Or maybe by some other Googly, algorithmly way that I couldn't even begin to fathom because I'm not Google and they're the experts at data management. It's what THEY do better than anyone in the world, even today's "cool kids" Facebook and Twitter.
So, why isn't Google doing this? Because they're looking at the cool sites and noticing how deeply they've woven themselves into our lives and they want to be like them. In other words, instead of playing to Google's strengths, it's giving in to Facebook-envy and Twitter-envy.

So notice, then, how different our access to books is from our access to documentary films. After a limited time, almost all published books...can be republished and redistributed. No heir of a long-dead author will stop us from accessing her published work...But the vast majority of documentary films from the twentieth century will be forever buried in a lawyer’s thicket, inaccessible (legally) because of a set of permissions built into these films at their creation...
But it is the accident of our cultural history, created by lawyers not thinking about, as Duke law professor Jamie Boyle puts it, the “cultural environmental consequences” of their contracts, that we can always legally read, even if we cannot legally watch.

Matt shows how you can easily add your books from off your bookshelf at home to the My Library feature in Google Books.
To get started, simply follow the My library link when browsing on Google Books, then click on the Import Books link. Rather than type in the ISBNs by hand, you can use a barcode scanner to read and import the ISBN from the barcode on the back of each hard copy book in your collection.
Once imported, you can rate them and view these titles in My Library on Google Books. The real power of this tip? You can then use Google Books-powered search to browse just the books in you own home library.
