Is Google Gearing Up for a Mac Software Assault?

One question we often get asked comes from Macintosh users. They ask, "Does Google have any plans to release some/any/all of their desktop client applications (Google Earth, Google Talk, Picasa, etc.) for my system?" It's a great question and while we don't have the answer, two recent job postings have got us thinking that Google is beginning to ramp up development of Macintosh software and services.

A job listing that was posted on an IEEE site last Friday and is for a Macintosh Developer. Another posting, this time directly on the Google job site, includes a listing for a Senior Macintosh Developer. Mac users stay tuned.
