It isn't going to be Microsoft. Whatever you think of Wave, at least Google is trying.
I agree. It's going to help some groups who commit to using it, but you're probably not going to be Waving grandma anytime soon.
I've tried it out a bit and conceive of great uses for it, but it doesn't seem to have a "light" usage capability. If you're not using it for all it can be, it's rather cumbersome.
But I totally agree with the last part of what I quoted from you, Adam. Bless Google's electronic hearts ... they try so many things that a few are bound to flop, but ultimately they have produced several products that have been lifechangers. And so much for FREE! So glad they have found a model that allows for the masses to use their products freely (ad-supported) and only charge power-users and some businesses.
