Cups, bowls, and papier-mache balls are in the past, because Solar Walk is a time-sensitive accurate information-packed interactive model of the Solar system and the Milky Way galaxy.

Microsoft Office for iPad

Microsoft Office for iPad 3 Coming?

Microsoft Office for iPadWith the picture floating around from The Daily and their supposed image a native Microsoft Office for iPad App, there is quite a bit of speculation pointing towards it being true. Although Microsoft denies it… why wouldn’t they offer it? It would be a huge revenue stream. Plus, even though I have the Mac Office Suite (Pages, Numbers and Keynote), there’s no denying the popularity of wide use  Microsoft Office.

One workaround I highly recommend (which reads almost all file types) is Documents To Go by DataViz… here’s a quick snippet from my write up on our 17 Top Office Apps for iPad that Get Things Done piece (highly recommend you take a look):

I remember my first business trip late last year when I left the laptop and did a solo flight with the iPad. I was a bit nervous because my laptop had been my life line. Besides its compact, sleek style and outstanding battery life, the ability to buy an app for under $10 that allows you to create, edit, save and email documents from Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint as well as the iWork Suite) is downright awesome.

It is the best office replacement for iPad 2 and iPad. Add in the ability to sync with your desktop and it’s downright genius. When I got to the meeting and pulled out the iPad with keyboard, the execs where not only impressed, but very jealous. I never looked back. The iPad is the only mobile office tablet I need. Apple’s Office iWork is also a great option if you want to throw down a few more dollars.

Of course, we also have the 13 Top Free Office Apps for iPad and iPad 2 that you should check out as well.
