Wave – The New Tech Trend at Google, Microsoft and Adobe
The way we use the Internet and out desktop has changed drastically over the last one year, and suddenly every web and software company is coming out with a wave of it’s own.
Here is a short surf on the three waves I know of :
Yes. That is true. Microsoft has got a wave of it’s own too. But this one is different from Google Wave. This is just another typical Microsoft attempt to promote their products, but this time they did it in style and with a lot of professionalism. For one thing, the website looks quite well done. Although the objective of the website is not clear, it seems they tried to say a lot of things without revealing much! One thing is for sure, is that it is a direct copy of Google labs, where Microsoft will talk about it’s latest products to be launched and also the ones in development.
Adobe Wave is another wave feature from Adobe featuring the SaaS (Software as a Service) ideology of Cloud Computing. It creates feed style updates for a group of users. So you can place an adobe wave connect button on your website just like an RSS feed link or a twitter follow badge. The information being sent on wave is reliably delivered to the receiver even if it is not stored in any of the user accounts. Adobe wave addresses the problems of managing communities of users effectively. It will also save spamming and phising attacks. All you need is adobe wave publisher account and you are ready to go.
So finally, with so many waves around, are you surfing enough?
