Experiences and Experiments in Programming

Some people say that the next World War will be fought with conventional weaponry.  I say the next World War will be fought with innovative technology and the battle front will be located in the trenches of our computers!  Yesterday I mentioned Google Calendar.  Well today I was pointed to the Longhornblogs.com.  It appears that Microsoft is fighting fire with fire and releasing their own online  calendaring offering.

The "browser wars" were just a pain in our neck!  It was unproductive, and I think it actually made me dumber trying to keep up with all the varying browser issues!  But what is going on now with Google and Microsoft is quite another matter.  I think Google and Microsoft are going to continue to push each other to constantly be more innovative.  They are going to have to look at using the current and future technologies to stay ahead and forge into ever newer territories.  We are actually going to benefit from this battle!

It has truely been a volley up to this point.  Just look at a few examples: Google Desktop Search vs. Windows Desktop Search, Google Earth vs. Virtual Earth, Google Toolbar vs. MSN Toolbar.  The list goes on and I am sure anyone reading this is familiar with most of them.  I can't wait to see both companies continue to push innovation in the areas of the web experience!  So I don't know about any of you but I am getting my bag of popcorn and my foam finger and getting ready for a battle for the future!
