This week, Adobe converted its Acrobat.com online service , introduced last year , from beta to production status, and rolled out two extra-cost upgrades while continuing to offer a free version. All versions of Acrobat.com include Adobe's Buzzword online word processing, but other features differ:
All Acrobat.com users can also try two new features currently under development at Acrobat.com Labs: Tables and Presentations .
Tables is essentially an online spreadsheet, while Presentations is an online presentation program. Both support sharing and collaboration features, just as the Buzzword online word processor does. Presentations displays thumbnails along the bottom of the window, making it easy to get to any slide at any time. Both programs provide immediate notification when users view the the table or presentation, as well as immediate notification when another user edits a cell or a slide. Tables offers a Private View feature you can enable before sorting and filtering data so that only your view of the table is affected.
Keep in mind that both Tables and Presentations are pre-release services, so make sure you keep the feedback coming (and don't use either service as your sole repository for data).
