The new and already popular Google Desktop search feature is going to becoming to a Mac near you. According to an article at a CNET affiliate named Google plans desktop search tool for Macs, "Google plans to release a version of its desktop search tool for computers that run Apple Computer's Mac operating system, Google's chief executive, Eric Schmidt, said Friday."

The question is, why would Google (1) waste time on such a small niche of the market (btw, I am included in that niche) and (2) why would they compete with Apple's own powerful and quick search tool, Spotlight. Spotlight is "a radically new and lightning fast way to find anything saved on your personal computer. Email messages, contacts and calendars, along with files and folders, all show up in Spotlight results."
