Windows 7: Cloud Notes is a handy sidebar gadget that puts a Google Docs-powered scratch pad right at your fingertips.
Cloud Notes links a small sidebar notepad to your Google Docs account for easy capture and note syncing to the cloud. You can stick with the basic mode which puts all your notes in one master document or use multiple documents. A simple set of arrows at the bottom of the notepad interface allows you to toggle between them.
