Google Buzz for apps: why is it taking so looooong?

Buzz is an extremely easy and fast way of communicating in your small or large team, even if you're very mobile.

And small to large teams are the target group for Google Apps.
The company buzz can be shielded from the outside world and can be completely integrated with other Google Apps.
Buzz was rolled out early this year and Google premium users are still waiting for Buzz.

Why aren't they implementing it?
  • There's no decent way to target specific groups of people within your organisation.
  • Tagging is not possible. And as you can't tag, you can't filter on it or create a filtered RSS-feed ... geared towards specific groups in your organisation.
  • I'm sure Google will be implementing a modest taskmanager in Buzz for Apps. Might take some time to figure out how they are going to do this.
Whereas Wave was (and is) too difficult for 'regular' users, I'm convinced Buzz has a great future for all Apps users.

I'm eagerly awaiting implementation,

tic, tac, tic, tac, ...
