10 thoughts on “Google Office, Some Clues”

  1. Om,

    Don’t know about you, but I doubt I’ll be sharing my personal files with a company that couldn’t even secure company secrets like the GDrive barf-up they did in the PPT, no?

  2. I don’t think the answer is black or white. it’s probably the grey in the middle. Google will get some talent, some press, some technology which helps the overall mission.

  3. I’m looking forward to GDrive and Writely… both will compliment each other nicely.

    As for privacy concerns — I can see how people would be apprehensive when it comes to storing information on the servers of a company that will continue to be in the sights of government due to it’s “allknowingness”.

    I completely understand the logic, but that’s not going to prevent me from using it. People who use GDrive to store or share illegal content SHOULD be worried — the rest of the world will only benefit from such a service

  4. What has me curious, and that no-one else seems to think worthy of comment, is the infinite bandwidth they refer to. Does this just mean ubiquitous broadband, or does it refer to Cringely’s data-center in a box theorising?

  5. Om,

    Well time is one thing but I still doubt about only having online Office could threaten Microsoft. I feel the best way to move forward is to provide Online-Offline capability with StarOffice.
    I have posted my thoughts at site.
