Rough Type: Nicholas Carr's Blog: Salesforce vs. Google

It's simpler, at this point, to try to enumerate the dwindling list of companies with which Google doesn't directly or indirectly compete...

("I don’t think it makes sense for me to comment on the words and actions of Steve Ballmer," sniffs Chief Googler Eric Schmidt at the start of a new Wired interview.) But with Salesforce's announcement today of a broad push into content management, the two new-age enterprise IT companies are now on a collision course. They're not just bedfellows anymore. They're competitors.
