Google updates Drive and Chrome for iOS and Android, lets you edit spreadsheets now

The larger update went for Google Drive, which was just integrated with Gmail to allow you sending up to 10 GB attachments. The app now allows you spreadsheet creation and editing on both platforms, giving the other office apps a run for their money...

I'm still sad about the absence of Flash in Chrome for Android. Love the syncing but the instability gives me diabetes. Going to check out the update now.

Find the latest apk online and install. Then get Firefox Beta - I have flash capability on my Nexus 7 now, because of this method. Should work with any JB OS phone/tablet, but it may not.

Teet-for-tat... Microsoft is going all aggro on advertising for Bing vs Google Search, meanwhile; Google's dropped a time bomb on Microsoft's ubiquitous productivity capabilities.

I think I'm gonna go gt me some popcorn while the competition heats up.

Try using Office Mobile or Office 365 before talking out of your backside.

Aww, that's cute. Here, let me get you some Preparation H for that butt-hurt you apparently have going on.

Regardless of which is better, competition is competition which only makes products better in the long run.

Other than that, you seem to have missed that my comment is more about the two companies' competition between themselves then advocating any mobile office suite as better than the other.

Run along now. Go have mommy take a look a that bottom.

Oh, here, I think I see your problem. Let me help you out. u·biq·ui·tous-
Adjective: Present, appearing, or found everywhere: "his ubiquitous influence".

Microsoft... they have a firm foothold on productivity across the globe and on all manner of platforms. Hence, use of ubiquitous. Maybe you thought I meant something else by it.

As far as use of time bomb in reference to Google's products... It has the potential to explode at a later time. That seems to sum up Google's productivity offering as it stands right now. There's potential there, but not quite ready yet.

Does that help clarify things for you?

I prefer Opera Mobile, as I also use the Opera desktop browser as well. Chrome for Android is lacking.

Is it weird that Chrome works better on iOS than on Android?
