It's been another week of mega Google updates. Several have been noteworthy-enough to get their own post. The leftovers are included below:
Google Android has launched 1.5 NDK, Release 1.
Meanwhile, Google Android phones are being announced and rumored for multiple carriers.
Google Maps now offers a "What's Here?" feature if you right-click on a map. However, it only provides light tourism information in the left sidebar. It would be a much better feature if it showed restaurants, shopping, hotels, etc in the area you click on.
Google News is using Wikipedia as a source, according to the New York Times.
Google search added friends to individual Facebook results, according to Google Blogoscoped.
Kevin Marks leaves Google.
Mobile Gmail gets a swipe-to-archive feature and expanded English language support.
