I recieved my monthly Google Friends newsletter today and noticed an interesting new feature… Google Earthquake.

Like other built in search functions like showtimes, stock quotes, and definitions, by simply typing in “earthquake” into the search engine, it returns the most recent, measurable earthquakes across the globe.

The data is provided by the United States Geological Survey (www.usgs.gov) and includes the magnitude, the location, the time, and even a cool little link to a Google Map of the epicenter.

This might not be something extremely useful, but it’s still kinda cool.
