Adobe said that their goal is big but yet so simple, they said that they want to change the way people works together on documents, for the better good. Well I think we should help them achieve their goal.

The Test

When I tried to test the Buzzword service, I waited so long to get my Word document to be converted to PDF (I’m using 1.5 MB/s internet connection). But when I tried it again with a different Word document it only took several seconds to convert. I wonder if any one experiencing the same issue.

Interested in trying the public beta version of Acrobat.com? Well, what are you waiting for, head over to Acrobat.com to give a try.
