Google's latest shot at Microsoft: An online spreadsheet

By Elise Ackerman

Tuesday, June 6, 2006

Google said it will launch a Web-based spreadsheet
application today, the latest in a series of shots it has
taken at Microsoft.

Google Spreadsheet, a free program that requires no
downloads and allows people to share or work on the same
document online, won't offer all of the bells and
whistles that Microsoft's Excel program offers. And the
program will only be available to a small number of users
who request to participate in a beta, or testing, period.

But people will be able to open Excel documents (.xls)
and Comma-Separated files (.csv) with the program.

Microsoft does'nt makes much money from Office anyhow, besides
OpenOffice has been around for many years. Its very hard to unseat a
strong and competitve company with a strong network. Google should do
what it does best, develop its search and communication technologies.
This world can take Google and Microsoft both.

I think that Google has already met its goals. Whatever it
does now are just fun and games without a high expectation
of financial reward. Business stagnation awaits Google.

Perfect record - wrong again.
