Google: creeping into your life one step at a time

Google unveiled Google Health, a long-anticipated health information service that combines the leading Web company’s classic search services with a user’s online personal health records.

The password-protected service provides a personalized profile for Google users of their basic medical history and gathers relevant information associated with the user’s health conditions.

One feature includes a link to help users find doctors by location or specialization. The “virtual pillbox” notifies patients when they need to take medications and possible drug interactions between different drugs. Users can also import medical records if they are available in digital form.

“I invented this for my mother. I wanted her to shower comfortably,” says Ma Yanjun, a Chinese farmer. The bottles are connected to each other by a plastic tubing so that water flows through them. Sunlight heats the water as is passes slowly through the bottles before flowing into the bathroom as hot water. He apparently gets enough water for 4 of his family members. His invention is such a success that some of his neighbors replicated it.
