Google has had a dedicated Mac Blog for the past five years run by Scott Knaster, a programmer and writer since 1980. While many places are ramping up their Mac based offerings, Google seems to be stepping off the platform in favor of pushing their own Chrome platform. Scott announced the end of life for the Google Mac Blog in the latest posting to the blog.
Scott’s final post on the Google Mac Blog states that “Our Mac and iOS support has now become so mainstream that we realized we just don’t need to keep Mac news on its own blog, so we won’t be posting here any longer.”
The end of life message for the blog was also the first posting to the Google Mac blog in nearly 9 months, making it almost a foregone conclusion that something was up.
