Google "We're happy to announce that we have acquired Quickoffice, a leader in office productivity solutions. Today, consumers, businesses and schools use Google Apps to get stuff done from anywhere, with anyone and on any device. Quickoffice has an established track record of enabling seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and we'll be working on bringing their powerful technology to our Apps product suite." Excellent acquisition - Quickoffice has always been a fine product, and this gives Google instant access to a wide array of native mobile office applications. Crazy nobody else ever picked these guys and girls up. Also, if Google makes Quickoffice available for free, we can enjoy yet another "Google is competing unfairly by not charging customers money for products"-whine-a-thon. That alone is worth it.

But who does?


Who likes typing on any phone, for that matter? Whether it's a pickboard with a stylus, or the current crop of smartphone keyboards - it's all just one big pile of suck.
