What's more interesting than observing Microsoft?

Web Office spotted?

Tomorrow’s Friday and Michael Arrington gets everyone’s juices flowing for the weekend with Confirmed: Microsoft Building Google Apps/Zoho Competitor:

Most of the good forward looking product information we get out of Microsoft is from the many blogs written by its employees. And when a post is deleted by one of those bloggers, it’s a big alarm bell to seek out and find what they originally wrote.

Today the deleted blog post strikes again (although in this case it’s an altered blog post).

Microsoft developer Tod Hilton wrote a blog post that says it’s his last day with Microsoft’s Global Foundation Services. He’s now moved to the Excel Services team, he says.

Hilton originally posted information on where the product is headed, then quickly removed it. The original text said, ”The product has tons of potential and will probably be competing with the likes of Google Spreadsheets, DabbleDB, Zoho and JotSpot Tracker. It’s a really exciting time to be working on this product!”

I’m sure, but not the time to be posting about it. Hit the link for more including the revised text. I was lamenting yesterday that Microsoft didn’t get Webware, but maybe I spoke too soon.
