As part of the new Google Drive, we are updating Drive’s viewer. The new viewer is faster, cleaner and provides easier ways to connect with third-party Drive apps. It also brings a unified viewing experience across Drive content and Gmail attachments. Note that as part of this change we will remove support for adding file-level commenting of non-Google file formats. This change doesn’t impact comments in Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, and existing comments on non-Google formats will be retained and available to view.

A few weeks ago at Google I/O, Docs, Sheets and Slides got a major upgrade — making it even easier for you to get work done at the office and on-the-go with Google Apps. In case you missed it, here’s a recap of how you can edit Office files, make Suggested Edits and a new ability to convert tracked changes to Suggested Edits:  Edit and share Office files — without Office  Technology is changing the way people work, but all that change can cause friction when employees are using different software. That’s why we made it possible to edit Office files directly in Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, so you can open and edit those documents in their native format using Office Compatibility Mode. No need to buy additional software or think about how to open your file. The Docs, Sheets and Slides mobile apps come with Office editing built right in, and with the Chrome extension, you can edit and share files directly from Google Drive or Gmail.

Microsoft issued a fix on Thursday afternoon for the security flaw that led the Department of Homeland Security to suggest customers change browsers until the problem was resolved.   Security Update for Internet Explorer (2965111) - Bulletin ID MS14-021 Those staff that have a Windows desktop or laptop computer will need to make sure they run "Windows Update" to get this fix installed on the machine.  I also recommend that all windows users enable automatic updates so you receive the latest security patches for you machine on a regular basis. Manually Run Windows Update Process:  Start - All Programs - Windows Update - Check for Updates Download and install all the recommended updates as suggested by Microsoft. Enable Automatic Update:  Start - Control Panel - System and Security - Windows Update - Change Settings.  Under "Important Settings" select "Install updates automatically (recommended). I strongly encourage you to apply this update as quickly as possible.  The security flaw allows malicious hackers to get around security protections in the Windows operating system.  You could then be infected when visiting a compromised website.
