Google Wave Open to Public

Google Wave is out of it's invitation-only phase. Now anyone can sign up for the service. But it's fair to say that Wave hasn't found a big audience yet. This reminds me of when tablet pcs appeared on the market. Microsoft immediately released and touted its tablet pc app that supported gestures. But then it did just about nothing to build a market for the devices.

Apple is so good at creating developer communities around its products. I mean, how many iPhone apps are out there now? Granted, Google Wave just isn't as sexy as a new phone. But why doesn't Google do more to help companies like CSO get more attention. It will only increase interest in Google's own products.

Read Nick Saint's article from Monday's Business Insider for his take on Google Wave's problems.
