It's not foolproof and only works when you're sending a message to multiple recipients, but it'll keep you from firing off a rant about your boyfriend to all of your best friends, and accidentally including, say, his mother.

I use Google Images as much as I use Google, but the one frustration I have is being able to find the exact photo I want (and therefore get stuck clicking through page after page). No more!

Google has also rolled out Google News Timeline where you'll find the biggest news stories organized by their date, so you can easily get caught up on all the news.
