According to The Inquirer, Google (GOOG) is about to launch a product to go head-to-head with Microsoft (MSFT) Powerpoint. That will add to Google word processing and spreadsheet offering and bring it a bit closer to suite offered in Microsoft Office.
Bad news for Redmond.
As the UK website points out, Google’s product is cheaper than Office and may well be set up to run on Google’s servers instead of the PC’s own processor and storage.
