For those of you who use Google Gmail, Google Calendar or Google Docs, Google is rolling out offline versions of each. This will allow you to access the programs and do certain functions without an Internet connection. When your connection becomes available again the applications will synchronize with Google servers again.
For those of you unfamiliar, the Google applications are web based (cloud) applications that allow you to connect to your email, calendar, and files anywhere you have Internet access and an available web browser. This new feature will allow you to continue to work even without an Internet connection.
