Google Wave on Ulitzer
Google has certainly been busy building a lot of different software tools
that can be used for collaboration, including Google Docs, Google Voice,
Google Sites (formerly Jotspot) and Google Calendar.
But there are a number of specialized tools that are more useful than these

Pardon me for adding yet another iPad analysis (certainly, when a computer
product launch makes it into Doonesbury, we have crossed a new threshold of
