If you're anything like me, you use a lot of Google products on a daily basis. I frequently make use of Gmail, Google Calendar, Docs, and Picassa, and I've also got a YouTube account that I use every once in a while. Switching between different pages to access all of those different things can be a pain in the ass at times. That's why Google's launched their new Dashboard service.

Google Dashboard allows you to connect to and display information for all of the Google products you use on a single page. From one central area you'll be able to check your messages and chats received and sent, change your account settings for every product you use, and view any updates and changes that have occured. Mind-blowing and paradigm-shifting? No, not really. But that doesn't stop it from being useful.

Just like Gmail, Google Docs, and YouTube, Google Dashboard is 100% free to use. To give it a look, visit here and log-in. I've taken dashboard for a spin and found it rather neat. For one thing, I'd forgotten entirely about my Blogger account until I saw its listing on my dash.

The only complaint I can think of is that, if you use a lot of different Google products, your Dash will basically read like a long list of services. That makes it impossible for folks like me to view everything 'at a glance'; some scrolling will be required. To be honest though, that complaint is so terribly minor it barely counts. All in all, dashboard is another cool and free service to help you manage your digital life.
