A numbers game

Much like how many “Friends” on Facebook you have or how many “people” are following you on Twitter Microsoft and Google are engaged in a numbers game to highlight the size and adoption of their online service.


A recent blog post from Microsoft claims:


“1 person is signing up to try Office 365 every 25 seconds”


Not bad in the few short weeks that it has been released eh? Any of these sort of figures has to be taken with a grain of salt but it certainly does point to the growing adoption of commercial cloud services by all sorts of businesses.
