Om Malik thinks Silicon Valley based Writely, an online Ajax word processor, and Google may be getting cozy. Unlike me, Om tends to really dig before posting on acquisition rumors, so this one may be for real. I’ve also been hearing endless stories of the imminent acquisiton of Writely – given the difficult business model that Writely will be forced into if they stay independent (premium fees and/or ads), the plethora of eager buyers, and the obvious synergies between Writely and Google Drive, this deal just makes too much sense not to be real. More on Writely here (just scroll down). My favorite Writely feature: save a document to PDF.
