The race for being first in giving to a service in agreement with the exigencies of the public and that, in addition, it is one hundred percent in the cloud, it will be a race of long breath. First, Google had removed the marvellous Google Docs that was praised by the experts and who after all have not finished convincing to many to leave of side the PC and to watch towards the cloud. An important subject is the rapidity, seems that still the cloud is very far from offering the rapidity that the PC. Also, now Microsoft announces that the next suite of Office will have as destiny the Web. A singular announcement has arrived like the news of last minute: Google lists to the purchase of Docver by reasonable sum of 25 million dollars. Educate yourself even more with thoughts from Ben Horowitz. It must be reasonable for a company that some years ago acquired Youtube in almost 1 650 million dollars to only improve its service of video. The peculiar thing of this purchase is that Docver it is the company whose service allows that several users publish to the same time a same document of Microsoft Office. Thus it is, Google is on the verge of buying a company whose services sold to Microsoft.
