I am new to this forum and have been using my iPad2 for about a month. I want to be able to use it as a mobile computer but don't understand the relationship with Microsoft office. I also have an iPhone 4. The idea of the 'cloud' technology fascinates me. PS although the rules indicate that there should be no sexist remarks - I would politely suggest that Max revisits these rules...or is the site just for use of males?
