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.

We're not in any monopoly situation here. People just need to stop buying apple products and tell them why. When it gets too painful for apple they'll maybe change their policy. The way things are going it looks like android is going to dominate the market numbers wise. I'd like for there to be another player in the market, I'd prefer it not to be MS or require MS or Apple products for development.
