Salesforce adds light project management with Manymoon acquisition

Today SalesForce announced their acquisition of Manymoon (a light project management app that's well integrated with Google apps). This is an interesting one because SalesForce is trying to attract developers to build on a Force.com platform exactly the kind of applications that Manymoon represents. The minute they get into that treacherous territory, they are making developers think four times before plunging ahead with their development plans. Add to this that the customers that were using Manymoon are mostly small consultancies (speculation) and I'm not sure I see the point.. Wonder if the pressure from Microsoft Dynamics is getting so high that SalesForce is grasping at every straw it can get it's hands on ( I mean hosting companies, small application providers??)
