Google keeps marching on in it’s bid to dominate the digital world. This time, they have acquired one of the best document processing companies – QuickOffice. This news arrived my email about 3 hours ago duly signed by Alan Masarek, Co-Founder & CEO of QuickOffice himself.
Here is the full text of the email which speaks for itself:
We are delighted to announce that Quickoffice has been acquired by Google!
When we embarked on our mission to become the world leader in office productivity, we knew we were taking on a huge challenge. We worked very hard to build Quickoffice as a user friendly, seamless and yet powerful way to view, edit, sync and share documents anywhere, anytime. It’s been a very humbling experience to see this vision embraced by our users.
Now, we are ushering in a new chapter with Google. By combining the magic of Google’s intuitive solutions with Quickoffice’s powerful products, our shared vision for anytime, anywhere productivity can only grow.
The journey has been nothing short of incredible. Our vision has only become bigger, and our commitment stronger. We wish to sincerely thank our users and supporters over the years; you have our eternal gratitude and we invite you all to join us in embracing this next chapter.

We are indeed in a changing world. Aquisitions taking place, alliances being formed, partnerships being forged. The world of communication and internet technology is no longer what it used to be.
In what direction are these changes taking us ans what do we as consumers stand to gain from all these.
