Google Docs

Awesome, I had no idea this existed. Google Docs acts as a place to work on text documents and spreadsheets. I just found this a few minutes ago, so I don’t know too much about it, but it looks pretty sweet. You can export files to be compatible with Microsoft and Open Office, or as PDFs, RTFs, HTML, or plain text.

Obvious benefits are many. One comes to mind. A friend of mine teaches at a school. He gets bugged when students submit assignments in Open Office format because he doesn’t have that installed on his computer. With Google Docs, he could upload the file, then save it as whatever type of format he prefers. For anybody who deals with a lot of paperwork and a lot of people with different preferences, I can see this as a great tool to speed things up. It’s also a great way to centralize your work so you can access it from where ever you may be in the INTERNET.

I plan on trying this out. In my new venture into the mortgage industry, I think this will be a great tool to use to create PDFs and share spreadsheets with not so tech-savvy people. I can just send them a link and I won’t get any “My computer won’t open it” type of complaints. Good stuff.
