Microsoft used to print money back when Ballmer took over. Look where they are now: writing off $1B worth of tablets, Windows 8 debacle, Playstation kicking butt over the new xbox, Chrome beating IE10 market adoption, and on and on.
Up in their own little world in Seattle, they must think Office on an iPad is some kind of game changer, and by holding the release back, they're somehow throttling iPad adoption or something like that.
Are they really pricing Office at $100? How can they be so out of touch?
And you know what? No one is going to feel sorry for these arrogant pricks as their company slides further and further into oblivion.
