Paul McFedries offers especially useful and detailed guidance on online document collaboration using both Windows Live SkyDrive and SharePoint 2010.

    Book News Annotation:

    The mobility of personal computing devices is still ahead of the portability of data. To solve this problem, Office Web Apps offer scaled-down versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote designed to run on a web server "cloud" instead of on a local PC, allowing users to view, edit, collaborate on, and store Office documents online. This book introduces users to Office Web Apps, discusses their pros and cons, and outlines best practices for using the features that come with each Office Web App, with step-by- step directions illustrated by small b&w screenshots. The book also covers how to use SkyDrive and SharePoint. A companion web site offers video tutorials demonstrating tasks, plus audio instructions for advanced tasks not covered in the book. McFedries is a technical author who has written 70 computer books. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
