This is really nifty - Google looks at your page, decides what’s relevant, and serves up some of their famous text ads. This leverages Google’s assets in the nicest way - now I know what Aaron (the other one, works at Google) has been going around smiling about for so long.
The other nifty thing is a new beta of the Google Toolbar, this time pointed out by Google Aaron. It does popup blocking, form filling and other stuff; I’m not an IE user, but it looks pretty good.
P.S. the ads are an experiment - if you find them obtrusive/offensive, please comment. I might not take them down, but I’d like to know; I have a feeling these are going to get real common on Weblogs…
