Turns out Scott Knaster, who I've known since the very early days of the Mac, has been working on Google Desktop for the Mac, which just came out today. I tried it on Windows when it came out in 2004, and was really psyched, but it didn't turn out to be as useful as I thought it would because most of my work had migrated to the web. Today, even more so. I have four computers that I use regularly, so there's really very little that's unique about each desktop other than its location (and one of them has Parallels and Windows XP, which I still find amazing). But Scott's one of the best designers I've ever known, and a great guy, so I'll probably give it a try.
