Multiple domains- I know how to forward them.
I could start a Google account for each.
But I'd really like to get the email to forward instead? I want it to be that you send an email to (anything) email@example.com and it ends up going to my main domain/email account.

I use iGoogle as my homepage and use Google talk from there as well but in the last few months I noticed with a few contacts, I can only chat with them in gmail. When they send me a message on iGoogle it flashes orange but the chat box is blank, I have to then go into chat history and see what they said and reply in gmail. I tried searching for answers, even reset my whole iGoogle yet this still persists. If anyone can provide any assistance it would be much appreciated.

The story that "Google" was a typo for "Googol": repeated many times. Is it true or not? Have the Google founders ever commented? This is probably an old hoary question [insert hoary joke here] but I haven't found a reliable source/answer.

Google likes to sign you into their search service once you sign into Youtube. It used to not be like this. I prefer to be logged into Youtube but not Google search/images/maps/docs/etc.. Is there any way to do this?

I am trying to figure out how to get to this timeline part of Google
(in this example, it is following the space program) from the Google main page. I originally got this page from a previous mefite's cool post about history of rock and roll and plugged in my own terms. I tried getting to this point from the homepage....when I type in "Google Timeline" it gives me a timeline to search newspapers. If anyone has wisdom, let me know. I really like this tool but want to explain to others how to get to this page rather than have them plug and play from my link. Thanks!

I have long held a fantastic dream of what I want my home theater
setup to be. I've tried several times, in several different ways, to
realize this dream - but there is always something. There's always
something that doesn't work right - that makes my final implementation
lacking in some fundamental way. I'm starting to give up hope. So -
I'll tell you what I want and what I've tried - and I want you to tell
me if there's another way. I can't be alone here. [more inside]

You know how Google Translate in Chrome will translate a page, and if you hover the mouse over something, it'll show the original? Is there something that can do the opposite: only show the English translation if you hover over the foreign text? (for Chrome or Firefox)

When users of my Spanish-language learning website visit it using Google Chrome, all the audio podcasts open at once, creating a cacophony which leads to bewildered emails (my users) and shame (me). The site is Spanish Newsbites
, it's been built using Typepad, and I can't believe I'm the only person in the world experiencing this. Any solutions (simple is good) gratefully received.

I want to remove all of the stars from my Google Reader starred items, so that I can start from scratch with my starred items. Is there any way to do this without doing it one by one? My searches seem to prove that this is a desired feature but not one that can be done, but I figured if there was a group that could either (a) help or (b) find me a shortcut solution, this would be it.

Please tell me everything I need to know about the GMail dot feature (placing - or not placing - a dot in the username of a gmail email address). I don't understand it, how to use it, what it does and how to take advantage of it. As an email receiver and sender. Also, what problems are created with this? Is there a way I can use it to categorize email, both received and sent? [more inside]

I have an Android phone and using Google talk to chat with my friends. I want to connect my Google talk to MSN Messenger and Yahoo. Do you know a good and reliable connector that I can use?
I know there are other clients such as Ebuddy/Meebo, but I prefer Gtalk since it is very reliable and I don't want the battery life to suffer by using another app.
I did some Google search, many instructions and lists are outdated.
