Why GigaOm Won’t Test Google Web Apps — It’s the Privacy, Stupid
MENLO PARK, August 28, 2006 (PodTech News) â€” Google announced last night it’s inviting beta-testers to try out its package of Web-based productivity apps, “Google Apps for Your Domain.” The suite, which is not yet complete, includes Gmail, Google Talk, Google Calendar and Google Page Creator. Some say Google again has Microsoft in its sights. But there’s one small business that won’t be taking Google up on its offer. GigaOm.com Founder and CEO Om Malik advises caution to other small business owners who might want to take the package out for a test-drive. Catherine Girardeau called Malik to find out why.
