I created my first Gmail account right before I started high school. I figured that my aim.com email, with my cheesy instant messaging screen name attached, would be unsuitable to send emails from in the future. It never crossed my mind that this one account would later link all facets of my life together in a neat, user-friendly package. With this one account, I am able to sync my email, calendar, documents, photos, notes, alarms, mobile apps, and music across my phone, tablet, and PC.
Google+ Photos backs-up every picture I take on any of my devices
Google Keep reminds me of things I need to do, keeps to-do and grocery lists
Google Drive and Docs eliminate the need to purchase a word processor and allow me to work on documents on any device that has an internet connection
Google Calendar helps me keep track and reminds me of important events
