Posted by David Hunter at 1:13 PM ET.

This week Microsoft is holding its TechEd 2007 conference and there’s a variety of news:

Google joins Cisco and Microsoft in video conferencing scramble

Posted by David Hunter at 11:33 AM ET.

The crew in Mountain View apparently has time (and certainly money) to spare as evidenced by yesterday’s quiet announcement that Google had acquired Marratech, a Swedish video conferencing provider. They now join Cisco, who just acquired WebEx, and Microsoft, who has Office Live Meeting acquired with PlaceWare, in the scramble for the “unified communications” dollars.
