Google Desktop Gadgets

Google Desktop 4 supports Gadgets (former modules) of the same format as those for the Google personalized homepage. This reuse is good for developers, of course, but note that not every gadget will work (or work the same) under GD4. To add a gadget, simply click “Add” on your Google Desktop sidebar (pictured above) and you will be taken to a search dialog. If you can’t find your gadget, you can enter the XML URL into the search box to add it. [Thanks A. & K.]

Google Reader Mobile

Google Reader is now available in a phone-optimized version. [Thanks Yannick Stucki.]

The Google Platform

The Google platform article on Wikipedia explains the technology behind Google (parts are speculation, of course).
