Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office: Oops, You're Too Late to Test

I have to admit, Google's announcment today about the new ability to use the Microsoft Office interface on Google Docs sounds pretty good to me:

Writes Shan Sinha, Group Product Manager at Google: "For those of you who have not made the full move to Google Docs and are still using Microsoft Office, Google has something great to offer. With Cloud Connect, people can continue to use the familiar Office interface, while reaping many of the benefits of web-based collaboration that Google Docs users already enjoy.

Users of Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 can sync their Office documents to the Google cloud, without ever leaving Office. Once synced, documents are backed-up, given a unique URL, and can be accessed from anywhere (including mobile devices) at any time through Google Docs."

Unfortunately, if you're just reading MY post, you're already too late to get in on the ground level of trying Google Cloud Connect out.  But you can get on a list to be notified when it becomes available.

Or you could just read this blog. No, this one. The one you're reading.
Sooner or later, it all turns out okay.
