After Google Spreadsheets, Microsoft Office 2007 goes online


2 weeks after Google announced the release of its ASP spreadsheets software, Microsoft launches Office 2007 online: you don´t need to download anything, so it won´t take too much space on your hard drive. And you can access it anywhere.

This is just the beginning of the Google-Microsoft war. More on this topic very soon.




ADDITIVE: Office Online is not compatible with Mozilla Firefox: Boooooooooh! Anyone got tomatoes?...

  • Hi, I am Cliff from EditGrid. Besides Google spreadsheets, there are various online spreadsheets working in different directions, includes EditGrid and Numbler which you may wish to try. We have our new release yesterday. In this release, we can get live stockquote and forex by our remote data function. Here is a demo stock portfolio valuation demo . Besides remote data, our API are now open, allowing you to build your own application using EditGrid.

    Of course we wouldn't forget our fundamentals, for spreadsheet functions, drag and fill and advance number formatting is available from now on.

    You may visit EditGrid_v._Google which shows a comparison between EditGrid and Google Spreadsheets.

  • Interesting links indeed (especially the very last one: EditGrid v. Google).

    Your post shows how Buzz Marketing has become a huge trend in online promotion. In the Internet industry, it is now "business as usual" to employ a team of people dedicating their time to buzzing on blogs.

    Suche practices should be encouraged as long as they add value to the content. For instance here, you provided a few interesting links.

  • Since we are talking about "Google" (more or less...) did you guys know that they have launched today Google Check-Out? (www.googlecheckout.com). Now you can buy your products with your google account. You just have to open a check-out account (fill your bank and credit card info) and you are good to go. One thing though: it won't work if your google account isn't a US account; and also, it will take time before the main e-commerce website gives you the opportunity to actually use this paying method.
    For those wondering: this won't be free for the vendors; google will charge a fixed 20 cents and a variable 2.2% for that.
