Yesterday, Google announced the launching of their Google Mac Blog, living up to their mission "to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful."
For making the information "universally accessible", Google has decided to provide products and services to the tens of millions of Mac users around the world. Google writes "…we've recruited some of the best, most passionate Mac people out there for a Mac Engineering team. You can already check out the first results of their efforts at www.google.com/mac :
- A handy set of Dashboard widgets for checking Gmail, posting to your blog, and checking your search history
- Two ways to upload photos from your Mac to Picasa Web Albums
- A cool Google Notifier that alerts you to new Gmail messages and (a Mac-only feature) upcoming Google Calendar events
In addition to these, you might have noticed some other Mac goodness showing up in Google products such as Safari support for Google Calendar , full Mac support for Google Video, and the Mac version of Google Earth. These upgrades are the result of more work by Google's Mac Engineering team and friends."
