links for 2009-10-2: IBM targeting Google; Google Wave

  • IBM Challenges Google's Webmail Dominance - The price is right, but it admittedly has fewer features than Google.  But both are a lot cheaper than the offering from Microsoft according to the article.  This is a clear indication though that IBM doesn't consider cloud e-mail only for consumers and doesn't want to cede that market to its competitors.  For those interested in such things it does support IMAP IDLE and they do have a free trial, but you have to call to sign up.  Now isn't that old school.
  • Google Wave crashes on beach of overhype - I have not tried it (I'm open to an invitation anyone!) but this makes it sound like it is far too busy an interface to deal with for any type of quantity of groups/friends/messages.  But it is early and I'm sure Google will improve it.
