  1. As they say, “Interesting. Verrrryy interesting.” If Google and Apple made a push for the home/individual users and Sun/RedHat made a push for the server market, it could spell some pressure on M$. Yes, we’ve all heard it before, but fighting a battle on two fronts is not one that any entity can handle for very long. I think that 2006 is the first year that M$ is obviously vulnerable.

  2. It is interesting to note that Google does not discriminate against Mac users when it comes to power supplies at the Googleplex. Last time I was there they had Mac power supplies in each conference room.

  3. I tried Google Earth for mac. It’s an amazing program, but the UI is kind of an embarrassment. Controls aren’t properly spaced out, their sidebar things don’t collapse properly, keyboard shortcuts don’t work, clicking things doesn’t work…

    It’s a shame to see such a great program come in such ugly packaging.

    in other words, they need to step up their Mac engineering recruitment efforts, stat!

  4. Have you guys seen the Google Video Store? It’s so ugly! I cant believe Google screwed up so much on the usability front. Only good thing is that the previews play without a hitch.

  5. Bob, the UI of the Windows version of Google Earth isn’t that great either. Nothing obviously broken, but still not very mediocre and circa 1999 looking.
