Google Office Rampage Continues

I know I tend to find fault with Google. Some of it is because of their sheer power, sheer arrogance and the fact that it, who creates no content, makes more money from content than those of us that do.

Nonetheless, I use Google search (even though Bing is probably just as good) and like what they are doing with free cloud apps.

The latest move is integrating Google Docs/Apps with Office. While still in beta, Google Cloud Connect for Office will let us store Office files in a Google cloud, and let others share and collaborate through Google Apps.

Google, you get a pass this week. You done good.

Am I too rough on the Google? You tell me at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
