Remains of the Day: Right here, right now
Microsoft Office for iPad may appear this fall, and a new dock-connector port might appear on iPhones and iPads some day, but you can download several of Steve Jobs’s appearances right now. The remainders for Thursday, May 31, 2012 carry a lifetime guarantee.
The Daily’s back on the Microsoft Office for iPad train; the publication says that the productivity suite will drop on November 10. I hope you can contain your excitement at editing PowerPoint presentations on your iPad until then.
The 30-pin dock connector that we’ve known since the early days of the iPod may soon be a thing of the past, if Apple job postings are any indication. The company is looking for lead engineers to work on both existing and new designs, bound to make you have to buy an entirely new set of cables.
If highlights of Tim Cook’s D10 appearance aren’t quite cutting it for you, you can now check out video and audio of all six of Steve Jobs’s appearances at the conference, including the time he gave Bill Gates a noogie.
