In an earlier post I suggested that Google Earth was like the Swiss Army knife of 21st century tools. If GE is the Swiss Army knife, Google Docs has to be at least a screwdriver.

It’s always been a handy gadget and Google has always worked to improve the product.

And now the Google Docs people have done it again by adding templates to the tool. Get a sense of the types of the over 300 templates by checking out the gallery.

It’s pretty simple to use the templates. Simply click on New while logged into Google Docs and on the drop-down menu, select From template.

Handy stuff!
