I’ve just heard that Google have a “bun in the oven” and expect to add ‘PowerPoint’ presentation functionality to Google Docs and Spreadsheets later this summer.
Google have acquired Tonic Systems‘ java based technology to do this and are currently working on integrating it with the rest of the ‘Google Office’ (although they don’t seem to want to call it that) suite.
It seems as if Google really are going at it hammer and tongs to provide a complete suite of online tools to organise information.
Are Google becoming Orwell’s Big Brother, perhaps, or are they really enlightened? Time will tell.
