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.

Nelson,

It surprises me that you are arguing over pedantry rather than the point being made, is it possible that you actually agree? That'd be nice for a change if that were the case ;)

In general I agree with the fact that DRM can be obtrusive and detrimental to a good experience, but I also think that there is a lot of hyperbole when these kind of discussions are had.

That's likely as close as you'll get ;)
