Google Desktop Search for OS X 

According to this article from Reuters, Google says they will create a version of their desktop search tool for OS X. Currently, it is only available for Windows.
Schmidt did not set a timetable for a Mac version of Google Desktop, saying it had to be rebuilt from the ground up because of the fundamental differences between the Mac OS and Windows.

"We intend to do it," Schmidt said at a University of California-Los Angeles conference commemorating the 35th anniversary of the Internet.
We'll have to see how this compares to Spotlight, a similar tool that will be available in Apple's Tiger. I've played with both, and right now Spotlight has a slight edge (finds things in PDFs.)
