Google to buy DocVerse, introduce Microsoft Office doc collaboration

,----[ Quote ]
| Google has been positioning Google Apps as 
| an Office killer and encouraging companies 
| to adopt it. Meanwhile, Microsoft 
| countered with a web-based component to 
| Office 2010. The latest move comes from 
| Google, though, with the acquisition of 
| DocVerse.


Google acquisitions may signal big push against Microsoft Office

,----[ Quote ]
| I use  Google Docs for almost all of my 
| writing, and Iâll be the first to admit 
| that itâs pretty bare-bones compared to 
| Microsoft Office. But that may change next 
| year.
| [...]
| By the way, Google declined to comment on 
| the DocVerse acquisition rumor (as it 
| always does), and the startup didnât even 
| bother to answer my email. DocVerse raised 
| $1.3 million from Baseline Ventures and 
| assorted angel investors.

This Is Why Microsoft Is So Far Behind Google on the Web

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft has billions of dollars to 
| spend, and more market clout than any 
| software company in the world, thanks to 
| its Windows and Office hegemonies. 
| Isn't it stunning that the company is far 
| behind Google and even Yahoo in the online 
| space? Why is that? It's not for lack of 
| resources and talent.

Verizonâs New Motto: Why Not Be Evil?

,----[ Quote ]
| Itâs Microsoft Bing or nothing. (The 
| BlackBerry used to offer Google, Wikipedia 
| and others.)
| Why? Because Microsoft paid Verizon $500 
| million, according to The Register.
| I donât know. Maybe Verizon heard that 
| there were six people left on Earth who 
| didnât have a reason to dislike it.



Verizon snuffs Google for Microsoft search

,----[ Quote ]
| Verizon has unilaterally updated user Storm
| 2 BlackBerries and other smartphones so that
| their browser search boxes can only be used
| with Microsoft Bing.
| The move is part of the five-year search and
| advertising deal Verizon signed with
| Microsoft in January for a rumored $500m.
| [...]
| Naturally, such sites can still be queried
| via the browser proper. But countless users
| are up-in-arms over the switch. A discussion
| thread dedicated to the change at
| CrackBerry, a popular BlackBerry user site,
| is now 36 pages long.
