"Were pretty serious about that mission, including the universally accessible part," Knaster and Yao wrote about Googles policy. "It means making products that everyone can use—including Mac users."

The blog also offers links to several other blogs and Web sites dedicated to Apple and the Mac line.


The new blog and the Mac versions of some of Googles applications come a little more than a month after Google CEO Eric Schmidt was elected to Apples board of directors.

A Google spokesman could not be immediately reached for comment about the new blog.
