This is not a question, just a news snippet for iPad users
I didn't know how to post this, so used the Questions slot ... so apologies to those who are going to shoot me down in flames.
For iPad users who want a decent spreadsheet etc, then check out OnLive Desktop arriving in the AppStore on Thursday Jan 12th. "The app acts as a remote desktop client for an “as-available” Windows 7 desktop hosted on OnLive’s PC servers. The free OnLive account comes with 2 GB of storage and provides access to Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint, as well as touch based games and several utilities." as stated by MacWorld online site.
To quote OnLive Founder and CEO Steve Perlman: "OnLive Desktop is the first app to deliver a no-compromise, media-rich Windows desktop experience to iPad, opening up powerful new possibilities for consumers and businesses. iPad users will now be able to simply and securely view and edit cloud-hosted documents with full-featured Windows desktop applications like Microsoft Office, just as if they were using a local high-performance PC. Multi-touch gestures respond instantly and smoothly, while HD videos, animations and PC video games-never before usable on a remote desktop-play seamlessly."
