Google Cloud Connect: killing Microsoft one step at a time
Google announced an amazingly convenient plugin/service - "Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office," which it says will bring collaborative multi-person editing to "the familiar Microsoft® Office experience."
On the plugin's download page we read: "You can share, backup, and simultaneously edit Microsoft Word, PowerPoint®, and Excel® documents with coworkers."
Sounds almost too easy and too good to be true.
But I see a huge move here towards the untouchable empire of Microsoft, its area of dominance.
This is fascinating... somebody, get me some popcorn!
