    Microsoft and iPad

    Interestimg developments lately. Microsoft just released an XBOX app for the iPad that allows you the ability to interface with the new xbox dashboard. You can send messages to Xbox friends, etc. another thing MS is working on is MS Office for the iPad. Seems like Microsoft is buying playing nice with Apple as of late. A bit of convergence. Cool stuff.

    I wouldn't think so. If you like android, stick with it. I do find it funny that google is starting to become the black sheep a bit and ms and apple are working together. End times maybe?

    Excellent! The Xbox app on iPad is really cool, along with the dashboard update.

    It just makes good business sense at this point. I have no idea what the numbers are, but I'd imagine the iPad has a pretty good share of the tablet market.

    Yeah it does. Honestly with office coming soon, that's going to boost sales even more. I would venture to say that MS stands to make some major bank on this.
