Google appears to be testing a new tool called Cloudboard, a service designed to act as a clipboard that shares data between Gmail, Google Docs and other Google applications.
Google-focused weblog Google Operating System discovered an internal feedback form (it's currently disabled) asking users to share their experience with Cloudboard, which the form describes as a "server-side clipboard for Google Apps". From Google Operating System:
Google provides an example of copying data from Google Spreadsheets to Google Docs: "if you copy a formatted cell range in Trix (cell border, colours, etc.) and then paste into Writely, it's transformed into a comparably-styled HTML table."
Sounds handy enough. In internal Google-speak, Trix is Google Spreadsheets, while Writely is Google Docs. (Writely was the service Google acquired and turned into Docs.)
If you want to glean more details of the service from the feedback form, you can check a screenshot of the full form here. What do you think? Does a Google-based clipboard from moving rich data between Google applications seems like something you'd use? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments.
