A funny thing happened when Apple and Google built their app stores…

They unwittingly built a massive new revenue stream for Microsoft….

According to Microsoft, OneNote had something like 15 million downloads fromĀ  Apple ‘s app store to the iPad.

Think this thru. If you are MS, someone else has solved the riddle of how do you get your apps on more devices and to more people. And what is more, you don’t really have to go thru the massive change this disruption has driven, because depending on how much you squint, you are litterally just cutting application code just like you aways did.

Imagine if you could buy one instance of Word, ppt or Excel instead the deplorable bundle that we’ve had for the last 20 years…. Micro payment based growth….

Weird, what the world does sometimes
