Google Spreadsheet

Information Week reviews Google Spreadsheet. I agree with the limitations that they discuss about Google Spreadsheet. I think this just goes to show the limitations of the web and Ajax for application development. You can be sure that they would have overcome these limitations if they could have, and they might yet, but you can see that web development is not near as easy as developing for the local client.

I think this demonstrates the potential of my NewI\O concept. Since my system was developed from the ground up to run applications, NewI\O spreadsheet would not have near the limitations that an Ajax version of a spreadsheet would.

I would like to disagree with the last comment, about it not making sense to share spreadsheet data. The #1 person you want to share data with is yourself. I want an internet spreadsheet so I can access my spreadsheet data and manipulate it anywhere I have access to a computer that is connected to the net.
