Google adds presentation product to Google Apps


At Web 2.0 Expo, Google announced that it has acquired Tonic Systems, a provider of a Java-based presenation authoring and viewing application.

As Google expands its browser-based product line, I ask myself:…again: “What about ink support?”

With Windows Vista ink is more of a first-class citizen than it has ever been, but it still has a ways to go online. As browser-based apps–such as this one from Google–become more and more prevelant, ink outside of the Vista platform is going to become down right crucial. It’s not just about the OS. It’s not just about the hardware platform. It’s about the software. Big time.
