I played around with Google Squared for a bit today. Seems to be best suited for things that can be compared side by side. Ingredients, famous people, reasons to bother using Google Squared, etc. Overall, it was not as excited as I had initially anticipated.
Perhaps one of the best uses for such a thing, would be in comparing cars, housing prices or something else relevant to everyday life. So on the plus side, this is a strong area for the Google Labs project.
Sadly though, this is really little more than a basic fact checker with a cool new “Ajaxy” layout to play with. So while it might be of benefit to some of you, I suspect that most of you, as with myself, will give this latest project a pass.
