Google Apps hits 1 million businesses

Heres the details.

Anyone here using it?

Of course I don’t use it as I don’t have a burning need to share documents that email doesn’t already address. I guess I should show more willing for these things as everyone is telling us collaboration is key and this is collaboration. What about you?

I suspect as I’m signed up for Gmail and youtube I may be one of them. I notice that OOo has pretty good (sounding) google docs integration. I havent really used it of course,



[ps I find the numbers coincidental – not sure which was the first report Google or MS.]

    I use Documents pretty actively for non-work stuff like publishing newsletters and gathering info.

    I find the Google forms are absolutely brilliant for quickly gathering information from friends. Say you’re trying to find a date you can all get together for a reunion or something like that. It takes very little time to setup a form asking the questions, and in no time, you’ve got your email sent to them all with a nice and easy form.

    Sharing text documents has been excellent for putting a together a newsletter i publish – we avoid version hell by avoiding using attachments.

    I haven’t done any serious spreadsheets that use functions so far, but am thinking of converting a Golf league spreadsheet i maintain to Google docs, so that other people can update it, too.
