Google Page Creator

Yet another online Web 2.0(ish) application from Google, this time allowing you to build and host your own web pages, with the release of Google Pages. It looks like you get 100MB of free web hosting when you sign up but, as usual, it doesn't seem to work with Apple's Safari...


The new Google Pages

Potentially Google now has control over my search history, email, instant messages and my web pages. Well I for one welcome our new Google overlords, and I'd like to remind them as a trusted blogger, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground, err, search farms...

Update: There isn't much point me talking about the new Google Pages, since Nik Cubrilovic, standing in for Michael Arrington over at Techcrunch, has done a pretty good write-up of the new service already...

Update: So, can anyone figure out why there doesn't seem to be any integration with Blogger? Also owned by Google, also used to create web pages? Surely a Web 2.0 tool to create a website should have support for blogging? A tool that would let you author an entire site, which also has a blog, rather than just create a website, or create a blog, and have the same look and feel running through both the site and the blog would actually be useful...

Update: Inside Google also has a write-up of the service and, just like Techcrunch, they aren't that impressed with it...
