Google developer playgroun

Google recently unveiled the Google Mac Developer Playground, a website for open source projects and demos. The Mac team of engineers uses the area to host projects that they build, from experiments to useful tools, as well as "just for fun" titles, something that they reportedly spend around 20-percent of their time on each day. Statz, for example, was created by Dave MacLachlan - one of the engineers responsible for the Mac version of Google Desktop - in his spare time. The program allows you to update your account status across many different messaging services.

Google currently has six projects up on the Playground. GData allows users to write Objective C apps that talk with Google's services through GData API's. MacFUSE is a mechanism that can be used to host a fully functional file system in a user-space program, and iPhoneDisk is one such file system, providing access to the iPhone's file hierarchy. Cover Story is a user interface for analyzing files using gcov on the Mac, and Quartz Composer Patches is a set of patches designed to be used with the Ambient Light and Sudden Motion sensors in most Macs.
