While not always successful, they are continuously trying to push the bar forward.

Likewise for Apple.Reply to this comment by Mr.

Dee May 28, 2009 9:50 AM PDT Looks like a useless Outlook wannabe to me.

Can't think beyond today.

You're probably the type of user that I have to smack with a bat all the time because they can't understand how things evolve for their own good.

Once its evolved then the reaction is "oh now I get it".

by nite41 May 28, 2009 2:43 PM PDT I agree 100%.I like companies that keep moving forward and creating new and better products.

Kudos to Google and Apple, and some other companies as well.

But not Microsoft.

by Hunnter2k3 May 28, 2009 9:57 AM PDT Oh god, i have been waiting for this for so long, i remember the screenshot of it a long time ago.This is almost making me foam at the mouth.Also looks like we might eventually have a decent replacement for Google Talk and Hello.Reply to this comment by someguy999 May 28, 2009 10:06 AM PDT Definitely cool, but looks like another reason our corporate networks will have to block gmail and its related urls.

As if time wasn't already being wasted enough through all of the social networks...Reply to this comment by Squashman2 May 28, 2009 10:23 AM PDT I disagree.

Some corporations are now using GHS for email and documents.

This is definitely geared towards the corporate world.

They are trying to take piece of the pie from all the other email and message solutions.

Now I know this won't replace say Lotus Notes with Same Time Messaging, but I can see this replacing Exchange and MS Messenger or even Novell's GroupWise suite of apps.

by Kesteral May 28, 2009 11:48 AM PDT The company I work for is moving over to gmail from Lotus Notes by the end of June, and I am very excited.

I can see wave as a possible way to do realtime collaboration on projects with some of our other sites in China, the Philippines, and Europe during our regularly scheduled teleconferences.

by SuperReviewer May 28, 2009 1:29 PM PDT No company that does anything legally related can use Gmail as a viable email client since it is too insecure for legal documentation to be transmitted.

So basically this is for the artsy start-up business to get by untill they have enough money for a real corporate program like Outlook in conjunction with an enterprise server, etc.

Is it cool and way over the top and more than any normal home user wants, Yes, revolutionary? not quite, but does it catch the eye of a hipster living in the city who wants to look important chatting about pictures they took, definitly.

Seriously do you people want your inbox looking like a circus of pictures and icons, and buddy lists of all types, with all your data and conversations being sent to Google's servers? Google should stick to serches and stop there let the big kids to the big kid things, and the toddlers can play in the sandbox, if you know what I mean.

by kabweza May 28, 2009 11:28 PM PDT @SuperReviewer, times have changed.

I think wave is a great platform even for the corporate.

Just because the screenshot above is just a front.

I'm sure, like current Gmail, it can be customised.

Whenever somebody gives me their yahoo address, I always look at them again and wonder to myself; 5 years on and he doesn?t know about Gmail??? Since the day Google made emails a conversation, there?s been no reason to use hotmail and yahoo.

Even Outlook 2007 can?t match Gmail 2004 lol lol Seems Google is going to be consuming all social networking competition Microsoft style...

by jessiethe3rd May 28, 2009 10:08 AM PDT Looks like Outlook.Reply to this comment by flickrz May 28, 2009 10:22 AM PDT I second that.

by AppleRocks1963 May 28, 2009 11:31 AM PDT I 'un-second' that.

by kahomada May 28, 2009 1:48 PM PDT Are you on crack? That's like saying a Geo Metro and a Ferrari look the same because they both have steering wheels and hoods.

You obviously haven't tried Gmail and are probably still cursing the bazillion ads found all over your yahoo or hotmail account, and hate it because you can't find where you put your emails because they aren't in the right folder.

Do you still print off your emails and file them in your desk drawer, for safe keeping? by Squashman2 May 28, 2009 10:25 AM PDT Now two people have said this looks like Outlook.

I don't see how this is anything like Outlook.

Gmail doesn't function or Look anything like Outlook.Reply to this comment by jake3373 May 28, 2009 2:17 PM PDT Agreed.

Google has developed their own email system that is completely different from competitors.

by LuvThatCO2 May 28, 2009 10:49 AM PDT I was initially going to dismiss it as just a twitter wannabe, but after reading more about it, it does sound interesting.

Though I think 'real time' typing is a very bad idea for business communications.Reply to this comment by forever4now May 28, 2009 2:30 PM PDT There is, or at least will be, an option to turn "real time" typing on & off.You might want to check out the demo video of Google Wave.

It really does look interesting.

by hypermark May 28, 2009 11:04 AM PDT Makes a hell of a lot of sense, especially as an open platform play.

My simple net out is that this is a model that deals elegantly with both messages and payloads, where the payloads could be pics, videos, posts, songs, maps, people/product/business listings, etc.As such, there is a lot of value in how the handling layer processes these messages/payloads, enabling them to be aggregated and/or filtered into logical constructs, like NOW, LOCAL, TYPE, POPULAR, VIRAL, ENGAGING, etc.I blogged about an application model that is very complimentary to this (and for which I have modeled out six very specific use cases) in a post called:"Right Here Now" services: weaving a real-time web around statushttp://bit.ly/i40hCheck it out if interested.MarkReply to this comment by basraw May 28, 2009 11:17 AM PDT Looks like an pretty big IRC room with graphics.Kind of like taking the Lynx Version of WWW into Mosaic!!! Nothing new here!Reply to this comment by Bobwojo1 May 28, 2009 11:26 AM PDT No thanks, I do not want anyone to see my E-Mail until I'm ready for them to see it and that is when i press the send button.Reply to this comment by forever4now May 28, 2009 2:31 PM PDT You have that option also.

by dnheller May 28, 2009 11:47 AM PDT Great, a unified user interface for even more efficient wasting of timeReply to this comment by knowles2 May 28, 2009 12:52 PM PDT Hey I love wasting time.

The efficient I am at wasting time the faster the day go by.

by jake3373 May 28, 2009 2:18 PM PDT I spend half my day wasting time.

Especially with StumbleUpon by ralfthedog May 28, 2009 3:47 PM PDT I can see lots of potential.

I ship images and text back and forth all the time to people I work with.

We mostly use email, however, I can see this speeding my work up quite a bit.

It could be quite fun for making changes to dialog.

by Super2online May 28, 2009 12:12 PM PDT Looks exactly like Outlook.

Click on the inbox on the top left Navigation area and it opens your inbox (or one of the other options) of posts in the center column just like Outlook.

Click on one of the threads in your inbox and and you see the entire thread in the right column just like you see the entire email shown in the right column in Outlook.

Wasn't to difficult to come up with the framework.

It's already been done.

It does look interesting, but we shall have to see how it works.Reply to this comment by jake3373 May 28, 2009 2:20 PM PDT Another person who says it looks like Outlook.

Google has always been developing their own interfaces.

The interface you talked about has been seen in much, much more than just outlook - look at yahoo mail and many other email apps by marc_90292 May 28, 2009 2:33 PM PDT ".

.

.

allowing you to send direct messages to online contacts with real-time replies" What am I missing? I do that with Skype every day - instant response.Reply to this comment by t8 May 28, 2009 2:39 PM PDT What you are missing is to have all these things in a unified interface.

Mail, real time replies, photos, etc.

by t8 May 28, 2009 2:36 PM PDT Google is the best thing that has happened to the Web IMHO.Reply to this comment by senitel10 May 28, 2009 2:49 PM PDT I think that this is going to be big, not as big as they might think, but with Google, it's ALWAYS big.Reply to this comment by twitter_1963 May 28, 2009 3:07 PM PDT I deal with clients in the 1000 to 30,000 seat range and they will not let anything like this loose on their users desks.

Social networking and now this Social Mail (SMail) will NOT work for the average business user.Now GMAIL is great and it has it's uses BUT BUT BUT it's not for wide enterprise use (yes, there are some wins but I can count them in the 1000 clients I have on 1 hand).And another but, the concept of re-inventing stuff that works has been around for a while and Google are very innovative.

This is not a big broken piece in the enterprise.

It is great for people that like to Social Network but not for business...

It's too intrusive...

Business users should not and must not work that way, it makes them very unproductive.

I should know, I see it in my employees...Reply to this comment by jaisongreen May 28, 2009 6:41 PM PDT Google Apps w/ gmail seems like a huge win the more users you have.1) No client application.

How many man hours have been spent just dealing with clients and their email issues.

2) No server infrastructure: Again, man hour black hole.3) General Administration: GONE, dont have to deal with backups, servers, drive space, etc.

by kabweza May 28, 2009 11:39 PM PDT @jaisongreen 1) No client application.

How many man hours have been spent just dealing with clients and their email issues.

- of course there is client application, your browser.

3) General Administration: GONE, dont have to deal with backups, servers, drive space, etc.

- NOT GONE.

just less.

transferring your email into the clouds doesnt mean no admin @ all.

What goes away is the troubleshooting.

other admin work stays put.

by databrain May 28, 2009 4:07 PM PDT Im all for this idea if only there is a web app (most certainly will) as well as a desktop app.

Call me old fashioned but I prefer desktop applications any day such as Skype or msn or outlook for all my online communications over web apps like Face book or Twitter.

I really don't like the idea of having over 100 tabs open on my browser to Handel all my computing activities.Reply to this comment by kabweza May 28, 2009 11:48 PM PDT Moving all computing to the Internet IS the future and aint nobody stopping it.

not even Microsoft, they're scrambling to catch up; changing business model, which has evolved around Windows since 3.1.

The times are changing.

the bloated Windows desktop has no place in the future.

A simple thin netbook running a web browser is all you'l need in a few years.

by forever4now May 29, 2009 12:25 AM PDT Chrome allows you to tear off a browser page to essentially create a stand-alone web app that can be launched like a desktop app.
