    Here's a story from yesterday that we didn't quite get to. It has the potential to be pretty important, at least in a big picture, future of Google way, so we wanted to share it. Google has acquired the company QuickOffice. This could point to a more thorough and complete Google ecosystem. By purchasing QuickOffice and integrating it into their products, like Chrome, Chromebooks, Android and more, Google has the opportunity to round out their entire portfolio with an increased focus on productivity. Here are the two press releases from each company:

    Google also bought BlindType and has yet to do anything with it.

    Google is "Skynet". I know that one day my Android cell phone is going to turn into a robot and try to kill me, but I am o-k with that. :biggrin:

    LOL. Yeah, me too! Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

    My hats off to the makers of QuickOffice. Money in the bank!

    Microsoft Office document format rules.
    OpenOffice and QuickOffice will lowball Microsoft Office.

    If someone had already heard of me from other forums knows that I am not really a Google fan. I always suspect that there's a motivation bigger than what appears to be a simple application and money full filling. Knowing that Google has many secrets it concerns me a little bit when it comes to how Google may use the applications they have, do they only want power or do they want to control what we do everyday, every moment, 365 days a year? My suspects is that they're already at work for the second choice...

    But hey, that's only my very personal opinion! :)
