    T3 reports that Microsoft Senior Product Manager Mike Tedesco revealed during the Office for Mac 2011 preview event at Macworld that the company is "looking at" the possibility of bringing its Office productivity suite to Apple's iPad tablet device.

    "Yeah, it's something that we're looking at," said Microsoft's Mike Tedesco, who is the Senior Product Manager for WindowsBU. "Obviously the announcement (of the iPad) is really fresh and there's nothing to announce or nothing that I can talk to you about today."​

    He's still a geek and uncomforable with saying "pad" in the same context as technologly. (snark)

    Realsitically it could be an attempt avoid Apples attempt to name this catagory of device in the non-tech publics mind.

    I dont understand your comment.

    The guy has not seen the device and is being asked if he is going to port a bunch of very complex and some would say inefficient code to it?

    1) is it technically feasible?

    2) is there a market for it? Its a new device catagory and a lot of people who make a living reviewing and using existing devices are saying that there is not a "killer ap" or even clearly defined market niche for the IPAD, it has yet to be defined.

    3) How about a little love for poor microsoft? I mean they have a place in the world of computing and have been successful at it for decades. LOL

    Can't we all just get along . . ..

    And I have to say the chosen name really sucks pond scum, just my opinion but I mean come on! My first reaction when I saw the official announcement was - they have to be kidding. Then I remembered the 101 fruit gum company came out of California too.
