Google vs. Office 365

The day before Microsoft's lavish Office 365 party in New York, Google released a somewhat wacky blog detailing 365 reasons to use Google Apps instead. The only problem: There were only four reasons! I guess we'll have to wait for the other 361.

Google argues that its apps are perfect for teams, offer more choice, are cheaper and easier to license, and more Web-friendly. Time will tell who has the best offering, but one thing is for sure: This competition makes both companies better.

One thing I do know: Redmond magazine interviewed about a dozen Office 365 beta testers and the results were pretty darn good. Check it out here.
