Aim for the Stars
Founders Institute doing a 500 startups for space, because space is so hard. Literally, the barriers are higher, the payoffs take longer, and more investment needed, plus virtually no pipeline for space specific entrepreneurs.

TrustEgg - The simplest way to save for a child's future
A service for easily setting up and contributing to a child's trust fund. The general aim is to make it less of a hassle, and it isn't a high risk trust investment scheme, going for more middle-of-the-road investing. It will probably reduce teh actual amount of choices a user can do, to keep people from screwing themselves too heavily.

Official Google Blog: The wind cries transmission
The other shoe drops regarding Google being a power broker. This offshore long distance transmission line network kills two birds with one stone; power leveling wind turbine output by averaging over a large geographic area, and new long distance transmission capacity with little to no NIMBY blockage (because it's very difficult to block what people can't see and is beyond the 12 mile limit) carrying power from southern US power producers (which includes the new nuclear reactors in Georgia). No other major power broker can probably bring online such large north-south transmission capacity using existing rights-of-way, and will likely have to either buy into the project at a disadvantage, or end up getting screwed by Google later in the power spot markets.
