I ran across this press release that reminded me of the days, that I thought were in the distant past, when software vendors sold what we referred to as “back up the truck software” because it was so hefty it needed to be forklifted in.

Wow! I think in plain English the intent is to offer businesses the ability to utilize collaboration tools like Wikis, forums and shared business documents to help them be more productive.
Fortunately, you can get all these business optimizing tools from Zoho, including our newly launched Actionable Search app. Oh, and businesses can leave their forklifts at home because they don’t need to install it and leave their checkbooks in their pockets because there’s no services required and it’s all available for a nominal subscription fee.
Boy, haven’t heard techno babble like that in a long time! If you see anything like this out there please share it as this one gave me a good laugh.
