Google+ doesn’t yet offer an API, so creating Twitter-like desktop clients isn’t an option at this point. That isn’t stopping enterprising developers from trying to work around these limitations, though. Indeed, the first Google+ desktop client – GClient - just made its debut. In the end, though, this is really just a wrapper around the mobile Google+ site.

Most online mapping products today feature transit directions. Sadly, though, it's the nature of public transit that things often don't quite run on schedule. Thankfully, quite a few transit district have now track their buses and trains with a GPS system so that the public can know exactly when the next bus or train will arrive. For the most part, however, you won't know this information until you arrive at the station (which is always either far too early or just too late). Starting today, however, there's a better way to get this information quickly: Google Maps will now feature live transit updates in four U.S. cities (Portland, OR, Boston, San Diego and San Francisco) and two European ones (Madrid and Turin).

Google, Bing and Yahoo today launched a new initiative that will introduce a common vocabulary for adding additional market and structured data to search engine listings. Schema.org, as this new markup is called, allows website owners to give search engines better ways to understand the content on their sites. With schema.org, you can, for example, ensure that a search engine knows that something on your site is a recipe, a movie review with a rating, a listing for a local business or that a specific page is about a product. In total, the schema.org hierarchy knows of a few hundred different content types that can be described through its vocabulary.
