This means that if your gmail address is firstname.lastname@example.org, you can send an email to joeshmoe+ANYTHINGYOUWANTCANGOHERE@gmail.com.
This is a great little known feature, because you can use it to identify which websites are selling your email info to spammers. For example, lets say you want to fill out a sweepstakes form on somesite.com and it asks for your email address. Instead of telling them your address is email@example.com, tell them it is firstname.lastname@example.org. That way you know that any email that is sent to that address (email@example.com) ORIGINATED in some way from somesite.com - either the email is from them, or they sold you out and gave it to spammers and now you know who to blame. And you can now set up a filter to delete all email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org if it's getting spamridden, making gmail accounts have automatic disposable addresses.
This is very similar to yahoo mail's "Address Guard" feature, except that you don't have to login to gmail to create the disposable address every time you want a new one. Just add a plus sign to your username and put whatever you want after the plus sign and you've got your new address. Pretty nifty.
Next time you're trying to figure out how to get somewhere on Yahoo Maps, send the directions to your cellular phone through an SMS message. Just click the "Send to Phone" link and off you go! No more pages of directions lying all over the floor of your car :)
