My birthday will be a real wingdinger

Microsoft Office 2000 logo

There’s just so much stuff being announced or released on my birthday, it’s almost too much excitement to bear! Bare? Bear? From the NOAH website, which is almost too funny in an of itself:

Russell Crowe stars as Noah in the film inspired by the epic story of courage, sacrifice and hope. Directed by visionary filmmaker Darren Aronofsky. [..] Australia: 27 MAR 14

That sounds… super duper. But here’s some far more interesting news. From Mary Jo Foley:

Microsoft has scheduled a March 27 press briefing in San Francisco [..] The [Office] suite for the iPad is rumored to include only Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, and possibly no other Office client apps.

I’d be quite interested in an iPad Excel, depending on its implementation. There’s no OpenOffice/LibreOffice for the iPad, and I’ve never been able to grok Numbers.

It is expected to be downloaded from the Apple Store but most likely to require a Micrososoft Office 365 subscription

H-happy birthday to me!

As an aside, I’m aware this hasn’t been the Microsoft Office logo for almost a decade. I just make it a habit of including logos that are more awesome than their replacements. Case in point, Java and Telstra.
