Oh dear, another off topic subject that's starting a storm. Personally I think we've got tooo much connectivity as it is. When I started in IT cell phones were non-existent and when they did come in they weighed 5 pounds bag & all. There is no private time anymore. No turning the world off. And these services are to blame. I've a younger cohort who was dating a certain young lady who was interrupted in the middle of I'm sure you can guess by a text message from twitter. Bother & shut them down.

Guillermo, what if Google expanded GoogleDocs to let you have online SVN/Git repositories and even leverage Google Code so you can create projects and seamlessly share it with people much like you do your Google Calendar or docs?
I think the key is integration. I think Google has done a very lousy job of integrating all these new services. I think Google Docs and Gmail integrate well, but that's about it as far as I can tell.

I have both wave and buzz. Don't really like any of them. Buzz looks to me as a 'counter' to twitter/facebook/orkut, that allow you to 'share' 'what's on your mind'. It's rather annoying really...
Wave has some nice features... it has potential to become a collaboration suite some day... but it's far from it. I think that shared code editing would be a nice feature, or perhaps a cvs/svn service...
I'd also like the ability to join wave with gmail... since gmail is my 'google central'...

Well, Wave is still in beta, so naturally there are still some bugs. I too wish there would be gmail notifications whenever waves get updated. I think, however, there may be a gadget for that.
Voice seems to integrate nicely into gmail for me. Getting text versions of voicemails is certainly nice.
As for buzz, well, it seems to be a twitter clone. Not sure of any good uses for it.

My biggest gripe about wave and voice was that it did not seem to integrate with gmail. Not sure if I am doing it wrong, but it was like I had to add users separately outside of my gmail address book. Like it was a whole new service so I didn't bother to try and leverage it.
Anyone find a way? is it integrated better now since buzz?
