Help me find a Google Desktop replacement

Please recommend for me a new search tool to replace Google Desktop. Ideally I want something that searches the full text of all files, that covers everything on my hard drive plus Google Docs. I want it to be fast, offer results in context, and have a simple interface that offers 'sort by relevance' and 'sort by date.' I use Ubuntu. [more inside]

Time for Gmail Upgrade?

Google Apps Upgrade Question: I use free version of gmail for my personal domain and because it pulls my personal and work emails I have reached the 7GB limit.

What's the deal with syncing contacts between Address Book, iCloud and Gmail???

In short: how do I sync all my contacts between Mac OS X Address Book, iOS, iCloud.com, and Gmail.com? Not as short: In olden days, I used the Address Book app on my Mac to store all my contacts. Everything in there would sync to MobileMe (and by extension, iPhone, iPad and me.com) and Google (for Gmail). After iCloud was released in October, turning on contact syncing between Address Book and iCloud resulted in a message that said if iCloud contact syncing is turned on Google syncing must be turned off. Googling tells me that lots of people are having this problem, but I'm not finding a solution within all the noise. What am I missing? Any settings to change? Any software? Thanks in advance.

Word and Gmail?

Gmail and Word Question: just recently, perhaps since the new look Gmail, sometimes when I compose a long email in Word, then copy and paste the text into an email reply, it looks fine, then I hit Send, and it ends up being sent without the proper line breaks. Specifically, the blank line between paragraphs (two paragraph marks from Word) become just one new line, and the email looks like a huge wall of text. There didn't seem to be any way for me to know that this would happen, as it looked fine when pasted into the reply box before I hit send. Also, if I compose a new message and post the text, it seems to go through fine; this only happens with reply. Is there an easy fix that I can do every time to stop this from happening? Can anyone explain this? Thanks.

How to get my daughter's gmail account back?

Can I get my daughter's Google email account back? She has had her full name as her gmail address since she was a toddler (her uncle picked up her full name early on.) They offered g+ to her and she attempted to sign up. Because she was honest about her age (under 13) they froze her account! What complications will there be if I use my credit card to verify the account? (one of three options to unfreeze.)

All Gmail All the Time, please

I'm on Mac OS X, Chrome, Gmail. How do I get MS Word and Excel to play nice with Gmail? Right now, when I go into Word or Excel and click File/Send To/Mail Recipient (as Attachment), a Mac Mail window opens up. Same thing if I happen to click an email link in a Word or Excel doc. I've installed Gmail Notifier, which opens a Gmail window for mailto: links on web pages, but doesn't help with Word or Excel. (In Mail, I've gone into Preferences/Default Email Reader and selected Gmail Notifier (1.10.7) but this makes no diff.) So: how do I make Gmail the default email client for Microsoft Office "send to" and "mail to"?

Why does the Gamil favicon on my IE Favorites bar always appear so blah?

I like to use the Favorites bar in IE8 and IE9 for frequently accessed web sites, such as iGoogle, Google Mail, Google Reader, and (of course) Ask Metafilter. I like the favicons that appear there, but, for some reason, the Gmail favicon always appears as the generic, IE website icon. See image link here. I've tried everything I can think of to make it look "nice" like the others, but it always looks like this, even on other computers with the Favorites linked through Xmarks. Why is this and can anyone offer a solution? Thanks!
