MS Office for iPad: Self deceiving downloads

Like many who are more than just IT users, I have been unhappy with the bullying and monopolistic Microsoft for many years. I am not disappointed when other successful enterprises came along and took away the opportunities Microsoft missed. I wonder if the erstwhile giant from Redmond is not too late with their Office for iPad but this is not as serious as the decay of their corporate DNA, which has been going on for a while but increasingly obvious to outsiders now.

This is silly self deception. Massive downloads of the Office for iPad app will not translate into equal numbers of Office 365 subscriptions. In fact I uninstall the app while it was still loading yesterday. Mr. Nadella is not a strong and confident CEO if he has to resort to such gimmicks to show out performance which really isn't at all.
