New Google buy; EasyPrint

In brief: Google acquires the web security firm Postini, EasyPrint makes its Mac debut, and a new beta of The Missing Sync for Palm OS appears. In an acquisition valued at $625 million, Google has now absorbed Postini, a web-based security company. The group's specialty is mainly in providing encryption, whether for e-mail, instant messaging or other Internet communications. Reuters observes that this will help Google support larger organizations with more web-based tools. Despite the cost of Postini, it is still relatively inexpensive compared to the total of Google acquisitions this year, valued between $750 million and $1 billion.

EasyPrint arrives on the Mac

MacEase has begun sales of EasyPrint 1.0, a utility that simplifies some printing tasks on the Mac. When a user just wants to print selected text or images, these items can be dragged to EasyPrint to start automatically. Preferences can be set for font type and size, as well as well as any stamps a user might want to attach. Hotkeys can be used to temporarily override preferences for individual documents. EasyPrint requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later, and currently costs $25.

New piece of The Missing Sync

Mark/Space has released the beta 6.0.1 version of The Missing Sync for Palm OS, an app which allows owners of Palm OS devices to better sync data from the likes of Address Book, iCal and Entourage. The new version addresses a crash when the Safari 3 beta is installed, as well as problems with the Photos conduit faling to run in conjunction with others. The download is free but requires Mac OS X 10.4.9 or higher as well as a handheld using Palm OS 4 or 5.

    Postini..

    Ummm - Postini's primary product is mail filtering & SPAM blocking - don't know where mail encryption comes in to play there.
