More Fluff: Google Apps for Your Domain

Google reiterated its intentions on August 27 to get into the hosted applications business. But no one should equate the so-called "Google Apps for Your Domain" bundle with Microsoft Office. Look what's in the "GoogApp" pack: Gmail, GoogleTalk, Google Calendar and Google Page Creator. No Word, Excel or PowerPoint

Google reiterated its intentions on August 27 to get into the hosted applications business. But no one should equate the so-called "Google Apps for Your Domain" bundle with Microsoft Office. Look what's in the "GoogApp" pack: Gmail, GoogleTalk, Google Calendar and Google Page Creator. No Word, Excel or PowerPoint competitors here. Google Apps for Your Domain is more like Windows Live Essentials or the soon-to-be delivered Office Live than it's like Microsoft Office.
