Google Earth, Google Desktop, Google Maps; where will it end?
I dare not rifle my wife’s handbag. The reason; I can’t find anything quickly enough before some sort of alarm goes off.
“What are you doing?”
“Er...Nothing”
“Do you want to borrow £10 to go down the pub?”
“Um…No”
“Give it here…here you are”
“OK…thanks”

       I must say no. Do women want to Google Toolbox or sock drawer? no way. Please stay out of our purses. It is kind of funny, so no fishbone. After all I do have a sense of humor.

       Google Toolbox is a damned good idea...

Except it's more like Google "Tools spread around all parts of the house"

       I think women would like this better than men would.   

       Also something that lets them determine whether there is, in fact, a penny somewhere within the 3-kilogram melange of makeup items, coinage, feminine products, etc. that she is rummaging through for 10 minutes while standing in front of the supermarket cashier.

       I'm not sure Google has the capacity to catalogue the average lady's handbag. I mean, the internet, sure, but a handbag...

       No way, anything that deprives me of the joy of waiting in a queue in a shop while some woman empties her life out onto the counter in search of 20p can't be a good thing. [+]

       Just before anyone else suggests it, a "Google Google" to tell you which Google-enabled tool you should use.

       now do I need to fix the flap on this handbag? Better look it up in glueoogle + Sorry [DR] you can blame Hippo and take a look at DrBob's most excellent idea "the Flamer's Guide to halfbakery" to see why. (+) for your own suitably daft idea.
