Google Wave -- The future or just plain B/S

Hi all
I looked at the hype surrounding Google Wave.
I'm not convinced I would go for this type of application -- for me Email is Email -- that's ALL I need it for.

I'm not sure I'd want a "Big Brother" type application echoing my keystrokes to all and sundry as I type them in any case.

Just curious to see what other people on this Forum think of the whole Idea of Google Wave.

Mind you my response was probably to be expected as I still just regard a mobile phone as a TELEPHONE and nothing else -- I HATE texting and have never sent a text message in my life so this whole idea of "Real time collaborative (spelling ?) software" might be a "generational thing" as I view things like facebook and twitter with equal disdain

Language is a beautiful thing and to limit responses into "Robot like I speak your weight machines" of 140 chars or less will surely kill stone dead the beautiful art of Oratory and decent literature in the future.

I for one hope that this abomination never takes off -- Google have lots of ideas but fortunately none of them ever work properly as a commercial product. Google should stick to its core business which it does very well.

cheers

Hi there

Love that link --- If only more people would use google or do a weeny bit of research before posting a question - great stuff -- you should get another forum point for that link --well done.


BTW Google wave was covered a lot in the media yesterday -- I'm currently in the UK at the moment and it was on the BBC.

Cheers

Been using it for a day now and it's kinda cool. I see the advantages of it for business collaboration of any type of planning but that's about the extent of it for now.

For me, it's plain B/S. The first 10min of that 1h video showed me what they wanted to do with it...

Hell, they want to let people know (from your contacts of course) that you sent an e-mail. Hell, I don't want people to know that I sent an e-mail to the logitech technical support.

The good ol' e-mail plzkthx.
