After numerous rumors and intense speculation, Microsoft’s fantastic and extremely popular Office package has managed to find its way onto the iPhone. The package, which landed on Apple’s App Store today, is a mobile optimized companion app that has been built from the ground up to provide access to the loved Office suite of applications directly from an iPhone. This is a fairly notable release by the Redmond company and has been expected for some time, but for some reason has managed to come with minimal fuss and a distinct lack of celebration.

Prepare yourself Microsoft software lovers, as it seems that potential changes are afoot over at the Redmond headquarters. It seems that well-placed sources are suggesting that Microsoft is taking a very serious look at introducing a fully functioning and official version of the Office productivity suite in 2014 for the Linux platform.

Today, references to a slew of potential Office for iOS apps have surfaced on the software maker’s support site, and although the product tags depicted look to have been applied somewhat hurriedly, the spot is as strong an indicator as we’ve seen that Microsoft is plotting to release Office for iOS.

The packaging of any new tech product is not nearly as important as its contents, but in the spirit of the launch, there’s usually a fleeting interest in the design of the box.

With many still savoring the announcements of the iPhone 5, it wasn’t so long ago Apple announced another significant addition to its vast range of products – the MacBook Pro with Retina display. Having gone through a bunch of run-of-the-mill enhancements to the existing MacBook Air and Pro models, the Retinized notebook served as that exciting “one last thing” at WWDC ’12, and although its sky-high price put quite a few consumers off, there was no shortage of consumers snapping up the sharpest-displaying notebook on the planet.
