- Google Storage for developers

- BigQuery, fast interactive queries on Terabytes of data

- Machine Learning API: Machine Learning made easy

- Google App Engine, exposing Data APIs is a very common use case for App Engine

- Visualization API: many cool visualization components

- Freebase, An entity graph of people, places and things, built by a community that loves open data.

- Google Refine, a power tool to work with messy data

    Google will overtake the current computing leaders by providing more value from using Google tools. Patrick was doing some very heavy analytics very easily in real time.

    Liked that patrick was able to share some code... The overall presentation and agenda could have been more organized. Patrick's know-how and fact that he has personally written code for the products he talked about lends more credence to the talk.
