When it comes to Google’s pioneer ideas and solutions, you can never have enough. Every couple weeks you hear of a new speculation or a beta version of a new service they are preparing to launch. Well, the most recent promise I have come across is Google Wave, a new service that combines e-mail, instant messaging, blogging, document sharing, wikis, and multimedia content to provide a seamless communications platform.
As of yet, only 100,000 people were invited to play with the new toy, but Macworld lists 5 reasons why we should be looking forward to this new creation:
- Single point of access
- Next-generation communication
- Real-time sharing and collaboration
- A life of its own
- It’s in the cloud
Do you think this is going to change how people communicate, or this is just another parallel universe which only a few of the tech-savvy people will be actually using?
Personally, I will give it a try for sure, but I wonder if this will become the default internet messaging tool of the majority in the long-term future.
