Google smacks Surface with free Quickoffice for Android, iOS

Brassic Lint

Eh??

I don't get it... I've had QuickOffice Pro for years on my iPad and use it lots. I hdn't realised Google now owned the brand. I checked and my QOP is v 5.something whereas the new google one which is free is v6.1. Downloaded it and as above can't edit Word docs... Which I have always been able to do (from DropBox which I also can't do now..)!

Makes the app pretty useless!!

So... take out a heap of functionality and start giving it away for free...

Filtering

Another useful way to use Google Apps / your own domain for filtering is to use aliases to track where your e-mail address is passed around e.g. my e-mail address is me@my.com, but you can register accounts against me+elreg@my.com, me+amazon@my.com, me+randompornsite@my.com and when those addresses fill up with spam you can

a) see where they got your address from and crucify that site

b) block the alias without losing e-mails from real people or from other sites that haven't displeased you by selling on your details.

RE: Keep your email address for as long as you want

Exactly what I was going to suggest... Domains cost pennies a year, and I use Google Apps (free for less than 5 users) to host the mail, even using calendar and contact syncing to mobile devices. Works great, have now had my e-mail address (through various hosting) for 10+ years!

I ordered by e-mail on Monday, I got the confirmation back this morning (Thursday) at around 7.30am. I was starting to think they hadn't got my order!

Hopefully it'll be up today, but I doubt it......
