Google bought Writely


It looks like Google bought Writely, a web based text processor and web document sharing service.

According to my experiences with Writely and other web based text processores I think it was a smart move by Google, because, in my opinion, they simply bought the best solution. With Writely, Google is one step closer to launch a web based office suite.

About this, take a look to this post ( from Russell Beattie. I bet that Netvibes will be the next winner.

    I’d say is way too much like the personalized google homepage to be acquired.
