Downside is that you need a gmail account.

Which you have already, if you have an Android phone.

One does *not* need a *gmail* account. A *Google account* will do. (Mine
is: harriebaken@xxxxxxxxxxxxx.)

I have a number of my own domains.
When I got the phone I tried setting that up with google (as opposed to
Samsung, who were quite happy to accept various ""
addresses). Google took the "proper name" ("Anton Aylward"),
donwshifted the "A" to "a", inserted a period and appended a
"" and there was nothing I could do about it.

Nothing, I tell, you, NOTHING!

I didn't like it, I fought it. But I was stuck with it.

The crazy thing is that I already had TWO other addresses that I use
with G+! Both of those use domains I own. I'm still struggling to find
out if I can use either of those with hangouts. So far, hangouts
insists on me using the "" address.

So it seems an issue of one "evil empire" vs another :-)


Indeed. + Apple crooks. So let's make Linux great & big!

Err, perhaps you should look at which firms make the greatest
contribution to the Linux code base.
(Hint: it isn't Apple)
