Microsoft "Microsoft product manager Petr Bobek has confirmed that the software maker is planning to release native iOS and Android versions of Office 2013 next year. Speaking at a press event in the Czech Republic earlier today, Bobek told Czech site IHNED that native apps will be made available from March 2013." Smart move. There's money to be made here, but I am wondering what kind of functionality they're going to reserve for Windows users.

Good businesses focus on making money.
A friend of mine once told me, there's only 2 kinds of relationships in this world
1) win-win
2) lose-lose

If you're going to have a relationship with someone, make sure it is win-win. Otherwise it will or eventually will be a lose lose.

If Microsoft is going to engage in a relationship with Apple, and they want to make money, they will make sure it is Win-Win. Apple gets a nice cut. Microsoft gets a nice cut.

You can only hope Balmer keeps his eye on the money.
