Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Sources familiar with the ongoing negotiations between Apple and Microsoft tell AllThingsD that the companies are at loggerheads not over the 30 percent commission Apple asks of storage upgrade sales made through SkyDrive, but over applying that same commission to Office 365 subscriptions sold through Microsoft Office for iOS, which is expected to launch sometime next year." iOS could end up being the only mobile platform without Office.

Doesn't seem to have hurt them much thus far.

But that's because no platform has Office. The popularity of Office in business is not to be sneezed at, and I can guarantee you that it's a selling point. How much so remains to be seen, but to dismiss its importance just because tablets have been doing fine so far is quite shortsighted.
