The Future As Seen By Me In 2010

Well looky here, things one has scanned in eh. (ignore the photo, that's some guy that made some accounting software, not sure what became of him ;) MIKE RIVERSDALE is fuming. The expensive headphones he bought in Sydney three weeks ago have just died. His first reaction is not to randomly spill expletives into his coffee, but to use his iPhone to vent his frustration to his Twitter con- tacts, under the moniker Miramar Mike. "I will also put, 'What should I do?' It's a conversation. I'm reaching out to the people following me."

I'll try out each of their products (all 18 of them) and compare them to both Google Apps and the more common of the client installed equivalents.

And to prepare myself I have already installed the Firefox add-on and the Facebook application. Prepare yourself for a Zoho-rocking month by reading Zoho's CEO Answers The Question, "Why compete with Google?"
