Openoffice – lets open our eyes

Everyone gets stuck into a habit. I use both a Mac and a Windows powered PC and until recently the MAC was my creative console for my Photoshop and iTunes activity.

Just a little picture of a great boat in San Fran – 09! I feel traitorous in what I am about to say, I have been one of those ‘start up’ guys who injected time and passion into the carriers over many years – I passionately and genuinely believe that this is where the hosted applications market is now at. …
