- The title of this application is Google Notebook. It was developed by Google. At the time of Google Notebook's release Eric E. Schmidt was the CEO of Google; Sergey Brin was the Technology President; and Larry Page was the Products President. Google Notebook was released on March 15th, 2006.
- Google Notebook allows users to "note" different web pages on the Internet. If you come across something on the web that you find interesting, want to investigate later, think would be useful for a project, etc. you can notebook it. It helps you put everything into an online "notebook" with text clippings, entire pages, pictures, anything. What's really great about this product is that if other user's notebooks are made public, you can view theirs. Thus if you and a buddy are both doing a project that requires extensive research online, you can view one another's notebook and view what pages they think are valuable for their project.
- To get started you need a Google account. This is very simple and shouldn't take more than five minutes. You then must install the Google Notebook application. Then later, if you find text on the internet that you want to save you highlight it, right click, and select notebook this in the drop down menu. Also, if you search on Google and you think a result seems interesting but don't have the time nor inclination to look at it then there is a button below the search result that say note this then it will be saved into your Google notebooks.
Once it is saved into your notebooks you can easily view it anytime you want. Simply log in to your Google account and select the notebooks tab. There you will find all your notebooks and postings thus making it much easier to save web pages and information for projects and the like; it is literally an internet scratch pad.
