Google to Acquire DocVerse?

According to TechCrunch, Google is close to acquiring DocVerse, a company that helps people group-edit Microsoft Office documents. This isn’t a done deal, but I’m crossing my fingers since my friend Shan Sinha runs the company and I’d love to have DocVerse integrated into Google Docs. As much as I like Google Docs for collaborating on relatively simple documents, the web application has too many limitations compared to working directly within Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

Here’s a demo of how DocVerse works with Microsoft Office.
