My article on Google’s office ambitions just went online over at the CNNMoney website. Between the Writely acquisition, GDrive and the content of the documents leaked accidentally, the question is not if, but when.
The leaked documents stated that the online-application strategy “will help us make the client less important…which suits our strength vis-a-vis Microsoft and is also of great value to the user….Gmail started to do this for webmail, but that’s just a small first step. Infinite bandwidth will make this a reality for all applications.”
An alternate take on why Online Office Apps don’t really cut the mustard.
