Say Hello, Wave Goodbye... to email, IM, Word, photosharing...

Brian RuncimanGoogle Wave has tremendous ambition. Everything done via a browser. It's a kind of live email, IM, document editing photo sharing tool - and that description probably does it a disservice.

This film is quite long, but imagine the implications: no more email as we know it, no need for instant messaging, document editing software changed beyond recognition (could it make Word defunct?) and the presenters mention that spreadsheet functionality is forthcoming.

Surely the tools here will impact social networking and picture sites too - and I should imagine a lot else besides.

On top of all that it seems it will be optimised for mobile devices too - at least the iPhone and Android phones anyway.

Check it out. It could be brilliant.
