Google Wave – Ahead of its Time or Just Another Failure? - Web Land
While I found Wave to be very exciting and useful, a couple of my developer friends were less impressed which surprised me. Wave solved the problem of "email threads" whereby people carry on long ongoing conversations that can be very complex to follow especially when they include several of the previous comments in their reply.
Facebook is fun, but Google is providing a new platform for business productivity embedded in a social meeting space. Apps are slowly working their way into more and more of what I do online. While they are not as powerful as Microsoft Office, for a great many situations they are all that people really need to get the job done. Google Apps provide basic functionality combined with online storage and easy collaboration. It's a combination that is hard to beat especially for free.
