Comment Trollbail (Score 1) 1174

There are consequences for being an asshole. Card's opponents enjoy the same right to free speech that Card does and exercised those rights for calling for him to be pulled for the project. Ultimately, his publisher decided it didn't want to be associated with his asshole beliefs. Nothing controversial about that.

Comment Cloud v. Native (Score 3, Insightful) 188

Microsoft would make a mistake by not providing some sort of native client for popular platforms. Accessing Office through a browser is fine for some but it requires a constant internet connection and can be less responsive than native code. If Microsoft forces iPad (and other tablet users) to use Office 365, they will be making a big usability sacrifice on behalf users that don't need or want it. Better to canibalize your own sales than to leave yourself exposed to competitors (ala iPod v. iPhone.)
