So what is the hype ?
Google serving a new product ?
Well it's not new, a web page editor, but it's been Googleized. What does it mean ?
Simply that everything becomes easy. For a non-webdesigner human being, creating web pages meant a tedious effort of understanding HTML code, CSS code, life, the Universe and everything else. None of this requiered here, simply choose a few options (looks and layout) fill with content (copy paste from any word processor) and voilà !
The only small annoyance, it's still not public, so you get to subscribe and wait for your number to be called.
GooglePages is tops ! but then i'm a Google fan, so don't expect me to be impartial.
