Microsoft snipes at Google Apps in latest ad

Microsoft snipes at Google Apps in latest ad

Microsoft can't seem to stop taking pot-shots at Google, and following the privacy-fear-flogging Gmail Man video comes an attack on the Office-rivaling Google Apps. The new video - which you can see after the cut - pits a sleazy Google Apps salesman against the enterprise market and, somewhat bizarrely, some soulful crooning about how we should fear the "Googlighting" man and the possibility that Google could simply pull the plug on features we're reliant on or, in fact, whole services.

Office for iPad denied by Microsoft

Office for iPad denied by Microsoft

This morning's report that an image of Office on the iPad was a precursor to a full app release has been denied in kind by Microsoft. The company has said that not only was the report that the app would be coming in just weeks untrue, but the idea that they are actually in the process of creating Office for iOS may well be untrue entirely.

We've got a report that iPhone 5 will be rolling out with NFC for the masses to pay their bills. And for your third completely unrelated news bit to start the morning off right: that conversation the president had with us on Google+ ended up speaking about SOPA - as if it's not already dead.

Windows 8 Office 15 apps to have fake Metro skin say insiders

Windows 8 Office 15 apps to have fake Metro skin say insiders

Windows 8 will lack a Metro UI version of Office 15, it's been suggested, with insufficient time blamed for what will amount to merely "interface tweaks" to better suit the pared-down menus. Although a Metro version of Office has been tipped for some time, the practicalities involved in rebuilding the software using WebRT in time for the OS' launch later this year mean the actual app will be a halfway house between traditional and Metro, The Verge's sources say.
