Think Free – then think again

ThinkFree is an online office productivity application in the same style as Google Docs and Zoho. I read a favourable review and was all set to try it out…

…when I discovered that for those of us in Australia or New Zealand, ThinkFree is distributed exclusively via BigPond – the internet service provided by Telstra, our largest telco. Which means: not a BigPond customer, no access to ThinkFree.

We have a saying in Australia: all telcos are bastards. Now you know why.
