Taking Potshots at M$, not taking pot…!

By | June 7, 2006

 Google has a basic format spreadsheet web offering (is it a program? is it a website? is it an application? what is it?) now available for testing. I've tried it out several times, I quite like it, and it makes sharing some regular documents EASY.

 I do use two or sometimes three computers, and finding the file on one of them is really quite a problem. Never mind sharing that file.

I recently also had to share files with different people, so it was quite a hassle to get the differences in the edited information reconciled with each other. I'm hoping that sharing files like this will make that kind of thing past tense.

 However, I do have one question. Will my data be safe here? I mean, I don't want to have to come to my file, then find it gone! Truthfully, Yahoo! has handled most of my files reasonably well, except the photographs where I was unable to retrieve the full copies that I uploaded a few years ago.
