Google Gears in the news

There is already some buzz in the press about Google Gears. The Sydney Morning Herald has a story here: http://www.smh.com.au/news/biztech/gears-puts-google-in-the-drivers-seat/2007/05/31/1180205350391.html and PC World’s article can be found here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,132403-c,webservices/article.html.

Also, in my excitement about the big announcement I forgot to mention that you can try Google Gears for yourself right now, because it has been built into Google Reader. Go to http://www.google.com/reader/ and click the “Offline” link in the top right-hand corner. As one of the developers sitting in the audience pointed out, “I might have something to do on the plane ride home tonight”.
