Google has kicked off its
Official Mac Blog, a place where Google’s employees will keep Mac users abreast of what the company is doing for Mac users.
A post from technical writer Scott Knaster and Mac product manager Rose Yao gives some insight as to the purpose of the blog. Reiterating Google’s mission statement of making the world’s information universally accessible, they write, “We’re pretty serious about that mission, including the ‘universally accessible’ part. It means making products that everyone can use — including Mac users.”
The duo note engineering efforts such as Dashboard widgets to check Gmail accounts, ways to upload photos to Picasa Web albums, Safari support for Google Calendar, Mac support for Google Video and a Mac version of Google Earth.
“These upgrades are the result of more work by Google’s Mac Engineering team and friends,” they explain. “We’re thrilled to have our Mac team in place, and they’re just getting started. Watch this blog to keep up with the latest about everything Google is doing to support Mac users.”
