With a new display ad exchange developed by its DoubleClick subsidiary, Google is hoping to give its one-trick pony another act.
Google has turned into one of the Internet's largest and most influential companies on the popularity of its search engine and the profitable text ads it sells alongside those search results.

When it comes to faithfully viewing and rendering a Microsoft Office or an iWork document on your iPhone or iPod Touch, Documents To Go quickly proves its competence by delivering crisp, clear reproductions of your Word, PowerPoint, PDF, and Excel documents. We love being able to create, edit, save, and send Microsoft Word documents with the application's formatting tools--including Apple's cross-app copy/paste, font and paragraph style, and lists, among others. However, until Documents To Go also engenders creation and editing powers for Excel documents, it will remain an incomplete business tool.
