Those of you either using or thinking of using the Google Apps online suite of tools will find this interesting. OffiSync, a free download, provides a toolbar for your Microsoft Office applications that allows instant access to your Google Apps document space. You can save to, and open from, your Google Apps documents as if it were just another hard drive connected to your system.
OffiSync can be downloaded and installed in less than ten minutes – more if you need to hit Google Apps and create an account. Hint: If you have a Gmail address, or a Google Account of any kind, you already have access to Google Apps. Simply go to google.com/apps and login.
If you need to sign up for Google Apps, try the free version, still available at that link.
