Cloud computing is a hot topic, but is it for you. Nancy Conner, the author of Google Apps: The Missing Manual from O’Reilly/Pogue Press, delivers some thoughts on the subject in a look at the software-as-service offerings from Google. Nancy discusses why security isn’t the concern it might be, what is and isn’t missing in the word processing and presentation offerings (for now), and where the online utilities outshine their desktop counterparts. The power of having your productivity applications connected to the web, the sharing and collaboration options and how word-of-mouth is contributing to the spread of Google Apps are all part of why you should take a look at this option for your home or office activities.
