MWC 09: Quickoffice for Android announced, viewer only

I was all excited to hear more details about the QuickOffice and Documents To Go clients for Android at Mobile World Congress, but was let down a bit when I saw the QuickOffice announcement. I was expecting that these applications would support full Office functionality, but the QuickOffice client is a viewer only for Word and Excel files. It remains to be seen what DataViz can do with Documents To Go.

Is Vista stupid (or is it me)?

OK – brief rant here. Why is it that when I'm using a USB memory stick, Vista is apparently incredibly stupid about removing the device when I'm finished working with it? First, the OS refuses to allow me to safely remove the stick if a window is open. How dumb is that? Second, even after dutifully closing all windows, files, applications, etc. and clicking on the Safely Remove Hardware button in the tray, Vista leaves the dialog box informing me that I may now safely remove the hardware open after I've removed the stick. Seemingly forever. Until I dismiss it manually. XP was smarter than this. So I ask again: Is Vista stupid or is it me?
