Google vs. Office 365

The day before Microsoft's lavish Office 365 party in New York, Google released a somewhat wacky blog detailing 365 reasons to use Google Apps instead. The only problem -- there were only four reasons! I guess we'll have to wait for the other 361.

Google argues that its apps are perfect for teams, offer more choice, are cheaper, easier to license and more Web-friendly.

Time will tell who has the best offering, but one thing is for sure -- this competition makes both companies better.
