Google serves templates

You've been tempted to use Google docs for their online presence and offline convenience, but you'd miss your Word templates? Check out the menu for templates at Google. There's a fresh and varied list that grows all the time as users deliver their favorite templates for everyone's use.

If you are a student, you will like the customizable schedule template. Change the cell backgrounds to reflect your school's colors, or give each class a separate color that enables you to see at-a-glance where you are supposed to be and at what time:

Like all of Google's documents, doc owners can make this viewable so that selected friends or family may follow your daily activities.

Does mom schedule the dental appointments and guitar lessons? Do you need to pick up your kid sister from school every once in a while? Give mom collaborative permission to make those entries, and she won't have to call with reminders, using up your valuable cell phone time with friends.

Just don't forget to check your schedule.
