It’s great to see Google developing some great apps for the Mac. In an effort to show that its employees’ “20 percent time” is benefiting Mac users, Google unveiled its officially unofficial sandbox for Mac developers today.

Take a look here:

I’ve set-up a Tumblr account. It’s a hellokinsella mini.

I’m dumping stuff here that doesn’t warrant a full blog post, kinda like a scrapbook.I’m really into it. It’s quick and easy to set-up, you get a Bookmarklet… and you’re quickly posting.

I’ve also added it to the Blogroll, and you can check it out:

Want GPS on non-GPS phones? Check out the new Google Maps beta.

Google can now tap into information broadcast from mobile towers to approximate your devices current location on the map. “It’s not GPS, but it comes pretty close..” Google explains on its website. I’ve installed this and tried it in New York. It’s amazingly accurate, and on my N95 you can activate true GPS too. Very cool.
