I'm no stranger to the f-word (believe me!), but really think it's jarring and out of place in a forum with no age limits. Am I alone in this?

Backchatter says you won't have to wait much longer for Word to join OneNote (already here), with the other two pieces coming as well (simultaneously or otherwise).
MS has already announced it for WOA tabs, and given that Office for Mac is a hit product, and with iPads penetrating the Enterprise, it's really the only way to protect the franchise. Especially since WOA's up to a year from shipping.

This was the one (important to me) checklist upgrade item missing from my personal list of realistic hopes.
Has the price of the chips quit declining (a la tech trends for the last 60 years)? 'Cos they've been stuck at the same size for a few years now, on both iOS and OS X devices - while increasing the size of the content (1080 P, bigger stills, iBooks, etc.).
Maybe with ubiquitous net, iCloud and options like SugarSync local storage really is going to matter less and less. Whatever, I'm finally ready to find out. The name is perfect. This is the first mature iteration of the product.
The lack of Facetime HD (given the component cost) was curious, since it's been in the phone for awhile, but not sure I'll ever use it anyway.
I was hoping for Siri, especially when Cook mentioned it early on. No one (outside of Apple) really seems to know why it's rationed to the iPhone 4s, but I'm guessing it's a server-side capacity and build-out issue, since iPads - even without cellular radios - are clearly designed to be used as net-connected devices - and it would be wildly popular.
In any case, LTE closed the sale for me - the screen was already adequate by me, but I DO notice and gnash my teeth over data latency. Productivity before HD in my book! So my first personal iOS device is weeks away. And now we'll see (whatever the label - see below) if the next iPhone will be my next.
Wish I could say I was as happy about the direction of OS X for power users. But as Cook's stats show, Macs will likely be less than a fifth of AAPL revenue this year, and after all these years wrestling with both major PC OS's I'll make that choice in a bit.

Yep, fer shure, they'd never sell a single one....
