Your First Google APIs Project

Looking for something to do with the new Google APIs? Here a project idea I don't have time to do.
I was working on an project, called "googlyeyes," using these apis, before I became too busy to continue on it. The idea was to have a utility that monitored all of my google searches, and re-ran them for me every day, informing me of new hits when they appeared. The API would easily work for this application.
This would let you discover new sites on your favorite topic; let you find new references to people with whom you've lost touch; let companies search for uses of their name; and so on. I'm sure there are plenty of other uses.
Someone less busy should tackle this...I'll transfer googlyeyes.org to the best implementation!
