Just imaging that you can use all Google tools and supported by Google Office, like I am in Google analytics exporting data with Google spreadsheets and not excel, and then interact using the new Google video streaming that can be implement it into Google chat and where a client can pay me through Google checkout. All from one big G.

I've always wondered why Google continues to use the Excel icon in Google Analytics instead of the icon for their own spreadsheet product.

I always hate it when companies like Microsoft try to redefine perfectly generic file formats such as CSV as "belonging" to a proprietary program like Excel, and it's disappointing that Google goes along with them on that. You should call a CSV a CSV, and not imply that it's specific to any particular software; it's a generic data interchange format.
