A few weeks ago, Google announced it was buying a small company called @Last Software. The main product of this company, a 3D modeler system called SketchUp, is now being released to the public by Google.

SketchUp allow users to create powerful 3D models for designing or just recreative purposes. It allows the composition of 3D models from simple primitives. And the more interesting feature is: you can upload 3D models to Google earth, and allow others to visualize your creation.

In a sense, Google earth is getting a little closer to what games such as second life already do: creating virtual worlds, and allowing people to visit your creations instantaneously.

To get a better picture of what is going on, download SketchUp, it is freely available. If you’re more adventurous, get a license for the Pro Version and start building a commercial world!

Microsoft cannot release its operating system on time, but Apple is always beating the clock in this area: Leopard is now close to completion, and early views of the systems are starting to be schedule.

If you want to see personally the new features of the new incarnation of Mac OS X, you should consider to be part of the next Worldwide Developers Conference 2006, promoted by Apple. According to the company:

With more than 120 sessions planned across five technology tracks, WWDC 2006 will cover the full spectrum of Mac technology. In each track you’ll find practical sessions, delivered by Apple engineers, that show how to take advantage of current technologies in Tiger, and how to get ready for what’s coming in Leopard. The five session tracks are:

Application Technologies
Graphics and Media
Development Tools
OS Foundations
Information Technologies

It looks a great opportunity to see the future of the Mac operating system.
