Google Calendar


Blogsphere is abuzz with the rumor of the launch of Google Calendar tonight. Its said to be an Ajax based application to manage and share  Your Events, schedule and Contacts etc. some screen shots are available here. After Writely this is another Frontal attack from Google to Microsoft's Dominance in Office Productivity application.

This bring us to two key point to watch for 

  1. ) With Calendar Google Will be Entering in to the phase of putting the Active Data /Business Data of users on their server. I am looking forward to see that How Comfortable an Average Biz user is with the idea of the Enterprise Data on Hosted Server? In my view, given the strength of their brand, doing this should be easy for Google,

  2. If Google is able to pull a good act out of calendar thing it will be natural to move in to the project management and scheduling. so will Google  try to invade the domain of 37signals. I think Google will probably bid for it. This will be an interesting play to watch 

I am keeping my fingers crossed .
