We have a guest who's latest post is entitled "the enemy of my enemy is my friend -- why ms office is coming toios." is this an admission to a certain extent that life has changed, business has changed, and you need to be competitor -- competitive on all platforms?

He realizes pc sales are flat and mobile is next.

They need their productivity software on mobile.

Apple is where it is at.

For apple, they see that microsoft is not their competitor anymore, it is really google.

It makes sense.

Doesn't mean people will start the work on the ipads?

But i think right now the tablet is mostly still -- analysts are talking about this is a massive revenue opportunity.

Could this be the thing that really starts to bemis company around?
