Is this new software suite a real threat to Microsoft Office?
I wasn't even aware about all of this stuff... Google's just a search engine and a eye-spy-in-space to me.
i wasnt aware of this stuff either. i knew about gmail, and the search engine, and that's about it for me.
does this work on Macs?
It works on any computer with a modern internet browser. All of google services are completely online and platform independent. I use gmail, google calender and have used the word processing and spread sheet apps. All of them work without a hitch on Macs. At the begging Safari had a few problems with them but Google has been quickly fixing those.
Love Google Docs and Spreadsheets, especially Google's online collaboration feature with Docs.
Google Calendar is really cool too. I made an appointment through Oulook and it automatically put the appointment on my Google Calendar. I assume because I have a gmail address. At first I was a little confused on how it got on my Google Calendar!
Google has alot of great stuff to offer, if you wanna see some of their really cool stuff thats in the works go to labs.google.com
Everything there is currently in a beta test, but it's cool to see what they have coming. Also, there google checkout feature had a free 10 dollar deal a while back, but I don't know if thats still going on.
I really hope this can at least take away some of Microsoft's monopoly in the Office market. If anyone can do it, Google can.
I hope Google teams up with Apple and makes iWork and Google Docs very compatiable. Apple has a great presentation program Keynote, maybe they can work together to bring it online.
If you don't yet have a gmail email account sign up today, support Google; support Apple.
Google to start selling business software (Google Apps)
Goobuntu will be coming, just you wait.
