...that's what TechCrunch believes, anyway. Bully to Google, I say. GrandCentral is a great service (but I still wish it offered SMS forwarding) and a purchase by Google means that I would be much more likely to use it. Why? Because Google's backing allays my fear that the service would go belly up as soon as it ran out of Venture Capital funds.
In the meantime I'm still using Mobile Secretary for my SMS forwarding needs.
I'll tell you what, though, I'm starting to fear Google and their insidious tendrils. Microsoft used(still?) to be known for their "Embrace and Extend" policy of
stealing aping other technologies and then adding their own services to it to force users to stick to their solution. Looks like Google's version of "Embrace and Extend" is "Just Freaking Buy It Outright."
