Google Apps competes with Notes and Exchange

I guess the big news today in the world of technology is that Google is going to start competing in the collaboration arena along with the likes of Microsoft Exchange/Outlook, and IBM Lotus Notes. Google Apps for your Domain currently contains Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Talk, and Google Page Creator, and will probably expand to include Google Spreadsheets, and Google Writely (online word processor). My take is that this service could be very valuable depending on how well each of these services are integrated and work seamlessly with each other. My only gripe with these online models is that they need to make synchronization with the desktop and mobile devices more apparent and robust. People cannot live in the online world all the time. That’s my two cents.
