I would love to buy some lamp chord that looks like this chord on etsy
and not have to pay a ridiculously exorbitant price. Does it exist? My google-fu can't find it.

Can I use google voice to make calls on my iPhone without a sim card? I have an iPhone and it's connected to wi-fi, and I want to use google voice to make/receive calls from my iPhone. I figured they're must be a way to do this by now, but google failed me.

How can I print a fairly detailed, large map from Google Maps? I'm thinking of using Blockposter to make it 4x4 or 4x6 pages. Is there an easy way to go about this?

After three great years my Google Calendar has simply stopped sending me email notifications. I have tried the help page here
and many unhelpful forum posts here
. This seems to be a prevalent problem. I wish I could switch to something else but Gmail is what I use heart and soul for work. Any others solved this problem? I am all ears. Thanks for your time.

Google Earth looks totally screwed up on my Toshiba laptop with Windows 7. A grid of squares overlays all the maps. I've tried unclicking everything to no avail. Googling has not helped. Here's what it looks like.

How do I see a large version of Google's reworked logo they make to commemorate special days? For instance, today Google has a little image of the Royal Wedding in place of "Google" in the upper left corner of their search page. I used to be able to go to the main Google page and the image would be nice and big, but now it defaults to my iGoogle page and the image is still tiny....

Yes, I've tried forcing an unexpected reboot, but I can't access Google, Gmail, or Twitter. Weirdly, Microsoft.com, Hotmail, Facebook, and Bing (and obviously AskMe!) all load with no problem whatsoever. And it's only affecting this computer (the only OS X machine) on the network! [more inside]

Is there a way to automatically "force" Google to search for the words I typed in, without having to manually include "+" before every single term? I do sometimes utilize fuzzy search, but I'm finding that lately, it is doing more harm than good, and nearly every search requires me to go back and add "+". [more inside]

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.
