Ok today I decided to take my office with me to Starbucks for my morning coffee. I am in the middle of some pretty intense work on a research item but the lure of my favorite caffeine fix was too much. No problem, I simply threw my smart phone and my iPad in my purse along with some journal articles (hard copy-I still need the tactile experience of placing yellow highlighter to paper when I am trying to process some materials) and off I went. I patted myself on the back because I had the foresight to place my documents in process in the cloud using Google docs so that I was truly mobile. I got to Starbucks and one grande latte and a journal article later pulled up my docs to edit only to discover that iPad will not let me edit a Google doc! Groan! I was lulled into complacency by my successful experience on Monday when I attended a board meeting using a Google spreadsheet to illustrate the salient characteristics of several musicals for the artistic committee. I was able to edit live during the meeting using my iPad. So I can edit a Google spreadsheet from my iPad but not a doc! Hmmmm…. see this link for confirmation of the problem.
