Google Makes It Seem Easy

I am playing around with Google Docs & Spreadsheets . Way cool. You can post directly to your blog from it. And you can even add labels. It’s also a great way to work with drafts before publishing them. It is especially helpful, if your workplace utilizes a proxy server that blocks access to the blogger site, not that I would know about that …

Also, google came out with a new patent search feature today. I have to do patent searches from time to time and they are a serious pain. But again, Google makes it seem easy. You can search patents and even see all the graphics without a special plugin viewer (you know what I mean if you have every used the USPTO site)

Update: of course there is always a catch. after reading how it should work, i found out when I published directly from Google Docs that it left the Title off of the post. It’s a bug and hopefully will be fixed soon. Still, it is an interesting way to take advantage of Google Docs better formatting and file storage capability. I had to go back and edit this post in blogger to add the title. I’ll keep checking to see when this gets fixed.
