    This was predictable – Google will become the Online (Web 2.0) version of Microsoft Office

    There are many new surprises in store within the coming years, as very high bandwidth becomes mainstream, and processors increase.

    It’s official, has purchased the company behind

    you might want to add the word Google in the phrase:)

    “It’s official, Google has purchased the company behind”

    I was sitting on the edge of my seat in bloglines for a mintue there:)

    What happened to Open Office alliance ? Was it just an announcement to trick MS ?

  • Frank

    The Open Office alliance was a farce. They claimed to be supporting Sun just to get a toolbar distribution deal with Sun.

    I have another theory…Google really bought Writely to integrate its word processing techology into blogspot.com. Although I have to admit that I do use blogspot for my blog, it is sorely lacking with its existing WYSIWIG html tool.

    “Google has purchased the company ….”

    Will the coming battle relate to how Google vs Yahoo vs MSN vs other big fish manage all the little people and companies they are scarfing up?

    2.0 continues to unfold as most think it will, leaving less room and tolerance for slow, clunky, heavily capitalized, bureaucratic companies.

    So how can the big fish avoid becoming … big fish?

    The battle against Microsoft Office starts now and is allright. Ok the process started earlier and I can only say good luck.

    Integrate its word processing techology into blogspot.com?

    Writely faq`s: aquired yes, at the moment no product change, no site look difference, no showing of Google ads, perhaps millions of users in future, maybe users have to register with Google, but not now.

    Nothing specific, they still leave changes secret.
