Exclamation Documents To Go

Please Login to Remove!

My new Bold (UK - O2 network) has Documents To Go pre-installed. Has anyone read the license when starting one of the apps for the first time? It specifically prevents you from electronically transmitting the program, it's files and results to any other computer. I queried this with DataViz who had not realised the implications of that statement and are checking this with their legal department. I am waiting for a reply as I cannot agree to this license restriction and am therefore not using the suite.

Also, curiously, neither RIM nor O2-UK know who loaded the software in the first place, and refer to each other in a continuous loop!

So, beware. For the time being, users of the pre-installed version of Documents To Go may be breaking the copyright contract if output (results) is / are shared with anyone else or transferred to any other machine.

What I don't like about Docs 2 Go is that you can't read simple text files in it.

I would much prefer to throw all my information into quick .txt files and save them for easy editing on machines that don't have Microsoft Office installed on.

Or if someone knows an app that will allow this, please let me know. It would be worth it's weight in gold to me...

I agree many people don't give a sh*t about software licenses, speed limits, tags on mattresses etc., yelling FU*K every other word in the street or bashing old ladies "for a laugh" either, but those are people who unquestioningly accept things the way they are, like MPs expenses and Jackboot Jackie Smith's draconian laws.

I give up. I might as well join them. Now, where's that old lady I saw earlier......
