Google is more than a Tool or a Company
I think that by having access to such a large bank of knowledge at any time, we are more easily educated as individuals than back in the days when you needed to search everything in books.

Also, Google Earth for example widens our knowledge about geography like every atlas combined. Google even went beyond that, by creating devices like the Google Nexus, it greatly improves the accessibility of this information.
I think that Google has greatly contributed in making us more intelligent both as individuals and as a society.
