Curious... how many of those images will G cache? We do know G never forgets a url... perhaps they will never forget an image, too? JohnRoy msg:4270237 8:22 pm on Feb 21, 2011 (gmt 0)
This is not to build their search database. They had the images etc. in their db even before docs viewer showed them. It's more targeted to take a share off the competition (originators of the file types). Or maybe, this time they mean solely to be user friendly :) weeks msg:4270283 9:22 pm on Feb 21, 2011 (gmt 0)
Interesting. That's good news. We're getting ready to move our corporate email system from the server in our office to gmail pro. Price is right and the technology appears to be better than Outlook/Exchange. JohnRoy msg:4271319 3:42 am on Feb 24, 2011 (gmt 0)
