One Windows, all devices: The new Microsoft app strategy unveiled

Microsoft announced its Universal Windows Apps technology, which is intended to streamline the process of building applications that can run on Windows Phones, Xbox game consoles, and the Metro environment in Intel-based Windows 8.1 tablets and PCs. Previously, developers had to create separate apps for the forthcoming Windows Phone 8.1, for Xbox, and for the tablet/PC Metro, which made it less attractive for developers given the relatively small size of those two markets.

Microsoft's Satya Nadella puts the cloud front and center

While the buzz centers on Office for the iPad, the real message in Satya Nadella's coming-out party was the transformation of Microsoft to a cloud behemoth

From the start, the change in tone was striking. For Satya Nadella's first big dog-and-pony show, 52 days into his tenure as CEO, he did what his predecessor Steve Ballmer seemed constitutionally unable to do: Declare unequivocally that cloud and mobile were first, not just for Microsoft platforms, but across every device.

With Office for iPad, Microsoft pushing subscription-first future

Office for tablets: Microsoft's Godot

Apple launched the iPad four years ago, igniting a tablet frenzy that altered personal computing at home and at work, but Microsoft has yet to release an Office version for touchscreen devices.

Much is made about the absence of full, native versions of Office for iPads and Android tablets, but Microsoft hasn't even readied one yet for its own touch-optimized Windows 8 OS, released in October 2012, thus depriving its own Surface tablets of a great sales incentive.
