Word And Excel in the web By Google

Google bought www.writely.com last year, so finally they have integrated together.
The new website is called: http://docs.google.com

Its interesting to see that you will be able to read online word document and excel in the web. Very useful indeed, but not too useful for some people.

Useful thing about having it online:
1. Share the doc with colleague and ask them to modify it online.
2. When you are on travelling and you did not bring your PC, its nice to know that you could always use internet cafe to read/modify documents :P
Some issue that I can think of:
1. Lost of internet connection, What happens if your internet connection lost in the middle of editing documents :-)
2. Since I store the "confidential" document in Google, what will happen if Google change the policy and will scan documents and choose to provides some "advertisement"

3. Since I store the document online, what will happen if someone else hack into the account.


Its a nice thing to know this feature is there when I need it, but I wont store my confidential file there :P. I might use it once a while, but will not make my business to depends on it :P.

I will still have offline Word processor and Spreadsheet. To safe cost, I will use Open Office which is Open Source programs.

Web Site: http://docs.google.com
