    Docs, slides, and sheets - another biz application of Google services.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:57:28 PM
    The similarity to Knox is apparent, but Sundar is being rather vague on the details. Remains to be seen exactly what kind of functionality will be offered. Can you disable your work phone at 6:30pm? Gosh I hope so.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:57:38 PM
    You can now use QuickOffice's MS Office editing built into Google Docs

    We appear to have entered the catch-all portion of the keynote. Lots of random stuff coming at us fast and quick. Surely they have something fun saved for last, though, yeah?
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:58:07 PM
    No skydiving, though. It's way too foggy today.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:58:23 PM
    You can handle a native word file in Google Docs, but save as a word file. "It works seamlessly," Sundar says.

    New editing feature to suggest edits, with easy review and accept.

  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 6:01:07 PM
    58% of Fortune 500 companies are using Google Drive, 72 of the top 100 universities. Makes sense, they offer a very comprehensive platform.

    Sundar's voice appears to be getting a bit weak. He's sipping some tea during the video. Stay strong, Sundar! We're almost there.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 6:01:47 PM
