Too little, too late?

Microsoft Office is now available for the iPad. It’s a free download from the App Store, which let’s you read Word, Excel, and Powerpoint documents on your iPad.

To unlock the editing and creation portions you need a subscription to Office 365 at at least USD 99 / year – yes, Apple get’s 30% of that.

From what I have read so far, people seem to like it, but I have to wonder if the long holdout time has made people realize that they really don’t need Office.

Time will tell.

2013 in review: Apple and it’s competitors – AppleInsider.

Daniel Eran Dilger for AppleInsider:

Tech blogs and mainstream media reports in 2013 consistently presented Apple as beset by a series of unsolvable problems, from flagging sales and slipping market share to a generalized lack of innovation. In hindsight, the media was disastrously, egregiously wrong about the horses it chose to back in the technology market this year. Perhaps they’ll do a better job in 2014.

What a great piece of reporting on the facts.
