MENLO PARK, June 6, 2006 (Podtech News) — Google, Inc. on Tuesday announced it’s releasing an online spreadsheet program, Google Spreadsheets. The move is being interpreted by some as another step in a systematic assault on Microsoft’s core market, office software.

“If you’re Google, I think your idea is let’s strike while the iron’s hot. And no company has been hotter over the last two years than Google,” said Laura DiDio, a software industry analyst at the Yankee Group in Boston. Podtech’s Catherine Girardeau interviewed DiDio to get her perspective. “Certainly, Microsoft covet’s Google’s online advertisers, and Google covets Microsoft’s desktop and office users. So that’s what this is about,” DiDio said.
