Salesforce.com to graft on Google Apps?

There are some signs that Salesforce.com's online business applications could be dovetail with Google's own online services. But it's just rumor at this stage.

TechCrunch is reporting that Salesforce.com will announce on Monday a deal to resell Google online applications such as Google Docs to its customers.

It's unverified at this point, but TechCrunch points to a Google Operating System blog post that details several bits of evidence that could point to some integration.

Salesforce.com and Google share a vision of transforming computing tasks that today happen on corporate PCs or servers onto services available across the Internet.

Salesforce.com declined to comment on the report. Update 9:09 p.m.: So did Google.
