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.

"Apple should be less motivated grabbing money from companies who increase the value of Apple's iOS ecosystem."

Companies who greatly benefit from iOS ecosystem.

This is just business and don't forget that there is an easy solution by not providing in-app purchase which should not be a real problem in this case for Office.
