Box has introduced Box Notes, a document-collaboration tool in the cloud that is expected to provide competition for Microsoft Office and Google Docs. "Our belief is that existing word processors have overshot the market, building ever more complex features, many of them still related to printing documents. At the opposite end of the spectrum, social communication and messaging applications have enabled new forms of continuous productivity not previously seen in the workplace," Box's Jonathan Berger wrote in a blog post. Box Notes is in private beta testing.
