Google docs released

October 11, 2006

Last night Google released Google docs, which has a totally google look and very few left from former Writely (that they acquired a few months ago). They also merged the Spreadsheets within the same interface, so the plan of a web alternative for Microsoft Office is on the make. I have been using Spredasheets for managing personal finance and it works just fine. For the corporate realm though, it is a long way to go. But again, Google is pretty much an end-user-oriented company.

As for YouTube aquisition, I just copy and paste the opinion of Yu, I found in Blogoscope, very down to earth:

“Also google seems to have been fooled with the whole ‘wow they remind me of the ambitions of google a few years ago’. And thats always dangerous.”
