Oh Yeah. Google Wave. I Forgot About That…

Google Wave

Last week at Google I/O, the company talked about Android 2.2, with 2.3 coming out this fall. They talked about Google Chrome and it’s updates. Then Google came out with the golden goose on Google TV. Overall, a very promising conference.

Oh yeah. They talked about Google Wave, too.

Google Wave has been made public to all. You don’t need an invite anymore. Although I don’t know if that means a hill of beans nowadays.

At first, I thought that Wave will be to Facebook what Google Buzz would be to Friendfeed or Twitter. Yet, I don’t see much addition to the Wave. It is still a big post board full of outdated and useless information.

Yeah, I can talk like a pirate or a droid, but that is not what I want. Where’s Farmville? Where’s Mob Wars? Where are the YouTube videos?

Wave has a lot of catching up to do before I can say Wave is the thing. In the meantime, you can sign up for it without invite.

Maybe someday it will catch on, but right now I don’t see it.

If you use it, please enlighten me. Why?
