I saw mention this week of a new version of Microsoft Office that is available for Mac, PC, and Surface, but not iPad, despite last year's rumors that a version for the iPad would debut in early 2013. Of course, there are third-party solutions and alternatives, but if you're like me and refuse to edit your spreadsheets in anything other than Excel, this article may be of interest: Run Office on your iPad.

It covers three similar iPad apps that connect to a Windows server In The Cloud(tm) to run Office remotely: CloudOn, Nivio, and OnLive Desktop. The latter two sound like VNC services, but CloudOn seems to have a native Office interface, and is also available for Android.

Anyway, just putting this here to file it under "Things That Look Cool, That I'm Not Going To Try Right Now, But Might Be Really Useful For Someone Else."
