Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office

Although not a complete cloud solution for Microsoft Office users, Google Cloud Connect is a step in the right direction. What it does do is backup all your local Microsoft Office files (as soon as your press “Save” ) to Google Docs (or “the cloud” as we affectionately call it.) This provides off-site backup and the ability to view your documents from any browser anywhere. What it does not do is sync in the other direction, meaning you can not edit your Office files in Google Docs, and expect to see those changes reflected on your local PC. Still, it’s a pretty useful tool. Sign up now (only for Windows users) to be part of the beta testing.
