Google Spreadsheet Spreads Wings

Posted by Geetesh Bajaj on June 30, 2006 09:43 PM

Google Spreadsheets did create a flutter when it was announced -- and I still had not tried it out. So when it started spreading its wings and there was this news report of Panorama Software integrating its business intelligence software with Google's spreadsheet move, I knew I should take a look.

I actually quite like what I see on the site -- as long as you are a Google member with a GMail account, it's super simple to sign in and start creating your spreadsheets. You can import your Excel spreadsheets, and save them too in Excel format. And the interface is great -- actually, it's more like a simplified version of the Excel 2007 interface -- you can't miss the fact that Google Spreadsheets has just one menu option (like the Office Button in Excel 2007), and everything else is accessible in tabs (again like the Excel 2007 ribbons). So is that where Google is trying to land its flight?

Adobe to distribute Google Toolbar

Posted by Geetesh Bajaj on June 22, 2006 02:53 AM

Adobe has decided to distribute the Google toolbar with a few of its products starting with its Flash player. That could be a setback for Yahoo!, since until now, the Yahoo! toolbar was being distributed along with the Flash player. Adobe does not mention if this ends their relation with Yahoo!

According to the Washington Post, Adobe said it had begun distributing Google search software to new users of Adobe's Shockwave multimedia playback software, which plays interactive programs such as games, entertainment, business presentations, and advertisements in a Web browser.

eWeek adds that Google's deal with Adobe will help Google continue to spread its products to consumers and compete with Microsoft, which is planning to embed its new search tool in its Vista operating system, which should ship early next year.

And QCK.com reports that Google's share prices rose over 3.9 per cent to $402.50 at close on Nasdaq yesterday, in light of the company's new deal with software distributors Adobe.

Posted by Geetesh Bajaj on June 05, 2006 10:54 PM

First there were voices that said that the Yahoo! and eBay team-up would hurt Google the most. Then there were rumors that the talks broke down and that eBay was talking to Microsoft. And then there was the news that Yahoo! and eBay will indeed work together.

And now Red Herring reports that Yahoo! and eBay are still competing in China!
