Microsoft Office for iPad Generates Rare Excitement

It's been awhile since the world got this excited for the release of a new Microsoft Office product, but Twitter erupted with enthusiasm today after Microsoft announced it would release PowerPoint, Word, and Excel apps for the iPad.

New Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella made the announcement at a conference in San Francisco today, noting that the apps would become available in the app store at 2 p.m. EST.

The company has long held off on releasing its apps to Apple products, and has only made them available on products that run Windows software. Office 365 Home Premium is priced at $99 a year.
