Google notebook - could be useful

I came across what looks like a very useful tool today. As part of the ever-expanding Google empire, they have developed Google Notebooks, which are a bit like a normal notebook, except that being web-based, you can access them from any web-enabled device.

If that were the sum of the tool, it would not be particularly remarkable. What is natty is that by downloading an extension, you can add to your notebook from any web page. Say you are viewing a page about Andalusian Hairy Ferrets (well, who doesn't?) and you want to make a note of something on the page, be it text, images or whatever, you just highlight it, and right-click. There is an option to add it to your notebook. You can also get quick access to your notebook in a little window right there and then, or go to the main Notebooks site and access it a full browser window.

Been using it for a day or so, and it looks quite useful.
