google is becoming the next microsoft. they'll have a monopoly of sorts; though, i can't envision 90% market-share. i wouldn't be surprised to see google come through in a few years with about a 70% share of the search market, which will carry over into their other web 2.0 apps. google is doing things pretty well, so they have a much more favorable opinion from the public than microsoft. that being said, yahoo and microsoft are going to put up a strong fight . . . but google is just better. <br><br>regarding the calendar app . . . i am still holding out hope for sunbird by mozilla. i have a soft spot for open source projects. <br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
