So Wave is in trial for 5 days now and – I have no invitation. Shame, Never mind.
So 500,000 users are in the trial and majority of them in the US. Google says it’s an amazing tool, we say Google’s PR this year is better then ever.
It is so strong that it makes us believe that there are just three busy areas for journalists, columnists and bloggers this year;
1) Michael Jackson
2) Economy Downturn
(There is also Middle East war and political affairs but this is going for sometime now).
Basically if you are “Horse and Country” journalist or correspondent for Far East or Latin America you either cover one of these subjects above or get made redundant as there was nothing to do.
So where were we? I know, another brilliant invention from Google – Wave. Is it good? We will see, it seems great but I believe there is still one important problem with Google inventions – lack of functionality on the launch day. A tool like Wave has to be business orientated. Market will test this idea but from over 1h long promo video it looks like they have still a lot of to do.
Good Luck to Google Giant!
