Google has acquired JotSpot

Somehow I missed this. I'm working on some stuff where this would be useful too. As tempting as it is to advise the customer to wait for new features, there are plenty of features in the existing Google Docs that they can use now. I have advised that they try the "Live" features that Microsoft offers, even though they'd have to do it without my hand holding as I have no desire to run Windows or Office just to be able to get to those things. They have no interest. Maybe, finally, the average Microsoft customer is starting to resent lock-in. I hope so, and think so. So what is Microsoft going to do about it?

Prediction: Nothing.
