Google annouced today that you can use Google Docs when not on the network-- Bringing the cloud with you:
We know that many of you have been waiting for offline access to Google Docs, and I'm happy to tell you we'll be rolling it out over the next few weeks, starting today with a small percentage of users.
Personally, I don't find this news all that exciting. I never use my computer offline-- what's the point? But I've heard lots of people use the lack of this feature as their reason for not wanting to adopt cloud computing. Google stuck a fork in that argument today.
