I'm going to be putting together a blog post(s) comparing the Cloud computing powers of both Google and Microsoft. Here is a List of what I came up with to compare:

  • Email:

    • labels
    • folders
    • junk
    • sync with outlook
    • all in one solution
    • alerts
  • Chat:

    • Link to other chat clients
  • Calendar:

    • sync with iPhone
    • sync with Android
    • sync with Outlook
  • Document Editors

    • reliability
    • usability
  • Cloud Storage

    • Space
  • Searching

    • Google Googles vs Bing Images
    • Top results to desired page
    • Spam on front page

Are there any other features that I'm missing? Any suggestions?
