Google to launch Picasa Mac at Macworld 2009?

According to someone who claims to work at Google, we may be seeing an Apple version of their popular photo management software at the 2009 Macworld Expo. This unconfirmed rumor does definitely sound plausible, considering a Google representative said earlier this year that a Mac version would be available "later this year".

I asked if Picasa for Mac was coming, and as luck would have it I managed to pick the Google employee with the least amount of media training and immediately put her on the spot. Her response: Picasa for Mac is under-development and will be launched later this year. -- Duncan Riley, TechCrunch

An official post on the Official Google Mac Blog has confirmed that they will have a booth set up where they will be making "larger presentations" and demoing software:

Demo stations will be placed throughout the booth so that attendees can try out Google software on their own, and in many cases, talk to the people who helped create that software.

This information is still unverified, and should be taken with a grain of salt -- but I'm hoping there is some truth behind this one. Picasa is a great piece of software, and if they do it right, you would definitely see it replace iPhoto on many Macs.
