    Buzzword has the best UI from all the online office apps, but it's not as fast as Google Docs.

      Yeap, when it comes to speed Google is always the winner.

    I just tried MagMyPic...
    what a cute idea!

    (Of note to Internet Marketers:
    Check this site out for hints and tips;
    I like the way they've got a link to be your 'friend on Myspace',
    A Social Bookmark button,
    An 'email to a friend' option,
    and an 'Email us with your feedback' option.)
    And the site is extremely well optimized for ease of use.
    Pretty good! Someone there is on the ball!)
