A unusually smart and docile move from the 800lb gorilla.  Maybe it came from their Mac Business Unit?

Now if Microsoft releases an iPad version of Office then I’ll really believe that somewhere there knows what they’re doing.

If M$ is able to make up a search engine, it must be easy, so Apple should do their own, just for the iPad, just for fun, just to irk Google and MS, just for a lark just using M$ little trick which just seems so practical.

Are Americans they only ones desperate enough to use it ?.............
