EMC Acquisition Shows It Wants to be a Cloudmaster - Bits - Technology - New York Times Blog

The plot thickens...

Pi has always been elusive about what it is up to, other than to say it’s working on personal information management tools for the Web-based world. It doesn’t yet have a product, and when I talked to Mr. Maritz this evening as he was about to get on a plane in Boston (EMC is based in Hopkinton, Mass.), he was not saying precisely what Pi would offer or when.

Still, it seems to be a Web-based alternative to parts or all of Microsoft’s Office programs. Some variation on Google Apps, perhaps?
