Sources say Google (GOOG) is in late-stage talks to acquire DocVerse, a developer of real-time collaboration around Microsoft Office (MSFT) documents, for about $25M. In effect, Microsoft is trying to counter Google Docs with Office 10's collaborative features, and Google is countering that with the acquisition of DocVerse.
