Edit Google Docs on your iPad, iPhone and Android

Google announced today you can edit your Google Docs on your iPad.  This is very exciting.  We bought Documents 2 Go to be able to do that, but being able to do it natively is appealing.

It hasn't apparently rolled out to my account yet.  I just tried it on my iPod Touch and didn't see it.  The family iPad is at work now (it has a job, I'm still looking), so I'll have to wait until at least tonight to try it out on the iPad.

The video shows them editing on an Android phone and the iPad.  If you edit on the Android you can add text with your voice.

So far it looks like only documents, not spreadsheets or presentations.

Hat Trick for Evernote

I actually feel bad this and the last two posts are all about Evernote.  But they are on a roll.  First they release version 2.0 of their Android client, and they hit 5 million users.

Now today, I awoke to find a new version of Evernote for my iPod and my iPad in the Apple App Store.

And the next issue of their podcast is out.

The best tool keeps getting better.

I plan another major post about Evernote once Due Dates are added, akin to recently updated "Your First Day with Evernote".

Family Tech: Net Neutrality

When I first was offered Family Tech, a column on Net Neutrality was one of my first ideas.  I've pondered it for over a year how to distill the concept to 600 words.  I just wish more people understand how important this is to them as consumers.  A mighty battle is raging in the halls of power that will effect us, and many do not even know.
