Noon News: Office for iPad, Microsoft Signifies Domain Names, Tesco's Special Tariff for iPhone 4S

Microsoft is reportedly planning to dish out its Office business productivity suite for Apple's iPad tablet device. Sources have told The Daily that the Windows maker is planning to capitalise on the popularity of the iPad, which dominates 80 per cent of the tablet market, to expand the user base of Office, which has already proved to be a fat cash cow for the company.

Windows maker Microsoft has unveiled a paper on the importance of domain names. The study primarily focuses on the importance of good domain names and has called it "Domain Bias" which is expected to add more value to good domains.

Tesco Mobile has added a special SIM-only contract for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S with a three month contract, which is possibly one of the best offers on the market, especially if you're a light user. For £12.50 per month, users get 500 minutes, 5000 texts, 1GB data and unlimited BT Openzone Wi-Fi access, which is, by all accounts, a fairly impressive deal.

The next Sony Walkman device has emerged in the US having landed at the FCC for its routine approval process. The NW-Z1000 - which will be pitched against the iPod Touch - has already been launched in Japan but has yet to appear elsewhere.

As Microsoft moves to position its Xbox 360 gaming console at the heart of the living room with media streaming deals and prepares the next-generation Xbox Loop for release, it is doing so without Don Coyner.
