"Holy Web2.0 Batman!" Next Up: Google Office?

<p>[via <a href="http://www.internetnews.com/dev-news/article.php/3553371" target="_blank">Next Up: Google Office?</a>]:</p> <p><cite>Google already offers Gmail users plenty of storage for their e-mail archives. If it extended that storage to other kinds of documents that were generated in conformance with the OpenDocument standard, and then combined that with a Web-based productivity suite to connect users to their stored information via any browser, the result would be a platform that could transform business collaboration as well as consumer communications.</cite> </p><p>Not sure how i feel about this. Sort of like "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." M$ is my enemy, google is M$ enemy… so i guess i like google now? I was not a google hater, I am just concerned about the growing dominance of google. Seems like the concentration of so much data and power could have serious reprocussions for us all down the line, but until then, godspeed google!</p> <p><cite>Google and Sun Microsystems (Quote, Chart) will hold a press conference on Tuesday at which they're expected to announce a collaboration to bring StarOffice productivity applications to Google users.</cite></p> <p>I am all for standards compliant software, and i love Open Office (sort of) and open office is really star office…. so this is so cool!</p> <p>Computers will become nothing more than appliances, all the data and applications will really live on the internet! That is so cool and so scary at the same time!</p> <p><cite>There's a Chinese curse: May you live in interesting times.</cite></p>
