The Google AJAX Search API lets you integrate a dynamic Google search module into your web pages so your users can mash up Google search results with other content on your site or add search results clippings to their own content.

The Google Maps API has been around for a year and defined how services could be exposed as javascript components for Mashup type Ajax applications.

The Google Data Calendar API is the first of the new REST Google Data API that lets you search and manipulate Time based information.

The Google AdWords API allows you to automate ads creation and management on Google AdWords.
