Google Notebook - noted
By chance I tried out the link and I can actually log-on to the new Google Notebook service.
After logging on you are prompted to download a Firefox extension, which I did. After restarting Firefox you get a help page that explains how to use the extension. Basically, you can then select stuff on a web page and have it saved to your personal Notebook (a little pop-up window that then appears in your browser). If you "note" an image from a web page then the image is displayed in the Notebook entry. Once the entry has been made, you can edit or delete it. Clicking on "full page view" opens a new tab in the browser with your Notebook entries. You can choose whether your Notebook is private (seems to be the default) or public. A public Notebook has a Web address and can then be accessed over the Net. The color of your Notebook changes from blue to orange if the Notebook is public. Google asks you for a nickname to use and then generates a URL for the page. Here is my little West Wing page.
I need to play around with it some more to see if it's something I can really use.

I'm loving Google Notebook, I got the Firefox extension to use with it and it's great. I can organize all I wanna save on the web easily.
