Submission + - Why Microsoft's Anti-iPad Strategy Will Backfire (infoworld.com)

snydeq writes: "Microsoft's isolationist tack toward Apple's iPad will only make Windows, Office, and SharePoint less relevant to users, predicts Mobile Edge's Galen Gruman.

To prevent that fate, Microsoft should untie Office and SharePoint from Windows. Doing so would give Microsoft productivity platform dominance across most of the computing market. In other words, the iPad could be a new platform for Microsoft's historic strategy of "embrace and extend" to win in markets where it had little presence, as it did in the Internet and in the server realm.'"
