Google Inbox is basically an email app by Google for Android, iOS, and Google's Chrome browser, with other web platforms planned. Unlike other apps, when the user logs in, Google scans the email account for important and similar information. It then presents what it considers the most important parts of the email first and groups similar emails as "Bundles" that are named by type (e.g., "Travel" or "Updates"). It also converts physical addresses into Google Maps links and airline confirmation numbers into a flight status update. Users can make custom Bundles as they would make Gmail filters, and can specify the time of day to show the Bundle. They can also organize emails with quick actions, such as swiping the screen to the right to archive a message, or swiping left to defer an email for another time. iTunes Download Link.

Google may have started out purely as a search engine, but it's evolved to be much more than that. The company has even hidden a host of Easter eggs inside its search engine, like the terms above. Did you know that the domain name for Google was registered on September 15, 1997? That's right, then the company was incorporated on September 4, 1998, and based in the garage of a friend (Susan Wojcicki) in Menlo Park, California. Craig Silverstein, a fellow PhD student at Stanford, was hired as the first employee. Continue reading for more.
Alan Eustace, a 57-year-old senior vice president of Knowledge at Google, was lifted up to the edge of space earlier this morning by a balloon filled with 35,000 cubic feet of helium, from an abandoned runway at an airport in New Mexico. He fell faster than the speed of sound and actually broke Felix Baumgartner's world altitude record set just two years ago by hopping from 135,000-feet.

Google Street View is great for virtual tourists, but to see truly bizarre anomalies, you'd have to open up Google Earth. The glitch you see above occurs because of how Google Earth uses texture mapping to create images, which means it overlays a flat satellite image with a 3D terrain map. Sometimes, Google's algorithms has trouble stretching a 2D image over a 3D landscape, resulting in some crazy distortions. Continue reading to see more.
