The future of applications

One of the things I like most about the new Google, you know, the Google that does mail, maps, etc. etc. as well as search, is that it's shown everyone what a web application can really be. I am continually astounded by the amount of latency-free performance Google routinely squeezes out of a browser. Very impressive indeed.

I am also very impressed by the web apps put out by 37signals. I look forward to their new "appless" app, Writeboard although I cannot guess what it will do -- maybe it's a wiki for the rest of us?

Finally, I am starting to play with some of the new desktop supported .Mac apps, like the new address book, published iCal etc. Sadly, it seems that among calender apps, only Now-Up-To-Date ties to-do's to days.
