Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office

Not sure if you are big fans of Google, but what they are doing in the cloud and advances they are making, continue to wow me. Their latest bit of news is the availability of a plug-in for MS Office...
to directly interact back and forth with Google DocsHello...that is awesome! The ability to work as a team on a document has been something that I have been using, but to be able to do it with MS Office just makes it 100 times more powerful:

"Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office brings collaborative multi-person editing to the familiar Microsoft® Office experience. You can share, backup, and simultaneously edit Microsoft Word, PowerPoint®, and Excel® documents with coworkers."

  • Windows XP with .NET Framework 2.0, Windows Vista, or Windows 7.
  • Microsoft Office 2003, Office 2007, or Office 2010

Here is the link to the add-in and a video overview:
Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac 
The BIG downer for me...doesn't work with the Mac...WHAT??? Come on Google, where is the Office2011 support for the Mac...let's make it happen.
