According to the Official Google Blog they are going to be releasing their presentation piece soon. I haven’t seen a date yet but knowing Google if the word is out then it really shouldn’t be long. According to a blog on ZDnet by Garret Rogers there will now be more compatibility between Google Docs and Microsoft products due to a new company Google has acquired called Tonic.
While Google claims to not be in competition with Microsoft these pieces together make a nice substitute for students who don’t have access to pricey office suites and make it much easier to collaborate.
Google has also acquired JotSpot – a wiki application, though as far as I can find, it is not out to use yet.Â It would be great if it would integrate easily with Google Notebook.Â Sounds like some interesting new tools this summer!
Thanks for that tip! I was just starting to use Jotspot when Google bought it–it had some great features, and was a cross between a blog and a wiki site. I’ll be eager to see it when it’s re-released!
