Google Buys DocVerse
Google Docs is pretty sweet. Using the service, you can access your files from anywhere, share with whomever you wish, collaborate on papers and spreadsheets. Still though, if Google really wants to have everyone on the planet using their services, they need to find a way to get Microsoft Office users on board.
Well, they may be making moves to do just that. According to the Google Docs Blog, Google has made yet another acquisition, this time acquiring the company DocVerse, which was started by some ex-Microsoft folks and allows web-based collaboration from withing the Microsoft Office suite.
Want to try it out yourself? Well, you can't right now. As with many other Google acquisitions (like Grand Central, which became Voice), they've closed the door to new users while keeping existing accounts active. So you'll just have to wait and see if they go for Google Docs integration, or if a new, highly sought-after beta invitation starts making the rounds in the near future.
