Just barely a week old and still in closed beta stage, Google's newest baby is still the most talked-about thing around town. And the benefits are being seen in its stock prices.
While Googe's stock in early January saw a high of $639.63, it took a nose dive over the first half of the year, settling at $474.88. That's a decrease of 25%! Today, the price is back up zo $536.49 (as of 6/7/2011), and we think it's because of +.
Meanwhile, programmers around the world have been searching through code to find soon-to-be-revealed new features. Florain Rohrweck, an Austrian developer, recently discovered a meeting feature for 10 participants where several people can act as moderators. You can write on a virtual whiteboard, log entries in a calendar, and share documents while the meeting is happening. There may even be a recording function.
It also won't be long before official brands create their own pages.
We think analysts have every reason to be excited.
