Do We Really Need Office for iPad? asks Ryan Faas at Cult of Mac. Quite. After twenty years of Microsoft, including ten of those years struggling with Outlook and its single, impenetrable and vulnerable data file, I was glad to run out of the door in 2007. That was when I bought my first Mac and discovered easier and better ways of managing my contacts, diary and tasks.
As for Word and Excel, I have never missed Word but I still like Excel. All in all, though, I was glad to see the back of Microsoft Office and I cannot imagine why there is all the fuss about its rumoured porting to the iPad. What is the point in it, pray?
