Look, I love TechCrunch. It always seems to have the news I’m interested in first. I should have written posts about all the things that I saw TC do properly.
But this was too sweet to resist.
Here’s TechCrunch yesterday, wirting about how Google is going to be announcing a replacement for Power Point:
They acquired Writely, and (mostly) built their spreadsheet application. The smart money is saying this is a build, not a buy.
Then today I read on the unofficial Google blog that Google has bought a company for its Power Point replacement.
The main guy at TechCrunch, being a stand-up guy, immediately posted an update to his post, and even teased himself a bit in the process. Because he’s a class guy, he didn’t write, “From now on I won’t believe anything from the source who told me that Google will build this in house.”
But I bet he’s thinking that!
