Cloud Sherpas is eager to announce the next major release of OffiSync! A
longtime Cloud Sherpas partner, OffiSync 2.0 boasts a one-of-a-kind Microsoft
Office to Google Apps extension tool that enhances Office with the cloud
collaboration capacities of Google Apps.

Thank you for your feedback to our last post. We are thrilled that through
the use of blogs and twitter, we can engage the community in a nearly
real-time conversation. What I find odd, however, is the fact that a leader
