Google buys Writely

This is only spookly because just yesterday I was drafting a post suggesting that Google might do exactly that. It was all part of a post about the recently leaked screenshots of the Google Calendar application, and I was going to hypothesise that Google might buy a service like Writely (with Writely specifically identified) and develop it into a full-blown online Office-style application suite, as part of the push to get us all to store more stuff online.

So I very nearly had a scoop. So close, but yet so far. I’m beginning to feel like ITV.

No, I’m not bitter.

Well maybe just a smidge.
