I wonder if women (or gay men for that matter) feel the need to comment on the attractiveness or otherwise of Mark Zuckerberg, Tim Cook et al when they do product introductions?
The tech world has a long way to go with its treatment of women.......
If the most arduous thing in your day is being complimented on your attractiveness, I'd say you're doing just fine.
There are already compatibility issues between Office for Windows and Mac. I can only imagine the nightmare of compatibility issues we will see on Office for iPad.
I have been using Keynote on my Mac and iPad to create lecture presentations. Works great even when I do presentations on the classrooms PC using Chrome web browser.
Thank you MS but I am sticking with iWork.
PS. Next time MS don't wait years. You have wasted valuable time and people already moved on.
I wonder if lesbians will feel the need to comment on the attractiveness of Julia White?

I don't think commenting about the attractiveness of a woman is treating a woman in a bad way. I don't know too many women that don't like to hear about being considered attractive. It's all about how it's said. Now, that said, if it's said in a sexist manner then that's a different story.
So, if a user already has a 365 sub, purchased prior to downloading the free iPad app, with that sub, when logging in, enable editing? I'm guessing yes, thus bypassing the 30% commission paid to Apple's App store. Seems like MSFT has a way around the App store commissions unless Apple has done something to prevent this.
Relax Paul. They comment about women in tech because they are as elusive as unicorns.
Maybe one of the reasons women in tech are as elusive as unicorns is because when they do an outstanding job, the quality of their work is not the thing they are complimented on, it's their appearance.
Engineering has a catastrophic problem with recruiting women and it needs to be solved, not ignored.
Don't worry, they certainly have a plan to gimp Office for iOS just as they have intentionally gimped Office for Mac since time began. Just get the folks in the door first. Build some dependency. Then drop the hammer and push them kicking & screaming towards Surface and Windows 9 Super Duper Platinum Professional Edition.
A leopard doesn't change its stripes. Even if it sends its Sweaty & Loud CEO packing.
I agree. I can see corporations buying it in droves at negotiated prices that are lower than advertised prices. (I have no doubt that they'll ultimately come up with some type of student edition pricing sooner than later).
From my standpoint, to the extent that it enhances (certainly does not, in any way, detract from) the value of iPads, it's a good thing.
But comments like that -- and how it is perceived by women for what it betrays -- might also help explain why they're as elusive as unicorns in tech...
Subscription-based? Cloud-based? Always online? No, thanks - irrelevant news, to say the least.
Interesting move! I didn't know that Apple allows such things.
As long as it is not an in-app purchase or a link to an external website to purchase the subscription, they probably comply with Apple's restrictions. Most likely depends on what sort of message is in the application to inform users that they need a 365 subscription in order to edit documents.
Thank you Officer Paul of the PC Police.
I suppose we should see all people as androgynous, faceless entities. Like computers. Wait, but not Macs, they're attractive. Maybe like Dell boxes from the 90s. Yeah, that'll work.
I don't know the woman but she appears to be very good at what she does. She is obviously a very intelligent and highly-skilled person. A great presenter. And attractive as well. The complete package. I wish I were the male equivalent. I wouldn't even feel discriminated against for it.
You did note we make fun of Ballmer's appearance (among other things)? Geez, can't a white male catch a break in the tech industry?
