Viewing Recent Purchases via Google

I was browsing for the voltage requirements for an item I recently purchased through Amazon when I found this neat little trick with Google:

I was browsing for HDE, the seller of a nice little camera I bought, when this box on the right popped up.
Searching for HDE with Google

I thought it was kind of cool, so I clicked on "1 item from Amazon.com" (which took me to https://google.com/search?&q=my+purchases) and I saw this:
My Purchases with Google

Google used my Gmail information and told me (very concisely) what the recent orders were, their expected delivery dates, and a tracking link for each (if it can find a relevant one).

I didn't expect to find this, but hey, one more way that Google is making my life easier.

(PS: You will need an active Gmail account for this to work)

(PPS: You can also just Google "my purchases" and the search result page will come up as well - you don't have to go through these steps to find that page)
