The widely rumored mating of Salesforce.com and Google Apps has taken place. There is now something called Salesforce for Google Apps; Google’s productivity programs have been integrated into Salesforce’s CRM suite – so data in one can be moved into the other and vice versa – in hopes – or so it is said – of creating a thunderhead that eventually rains all over Microsoft’s parade.

Where Is The Intuitive Web?

The current web provides a two dimensional user experience. A user has to interact with 2 dimensional objects in a browser. This experience is so much frustrating that some users are turning back to old way of doing business - go offline and call the live person.

The ability to interact like you would do with a live person. One should not need any special language or special technology to do business online. The fact that peop... (more)
