In an effort to combat piracy, Microsoft has finally begun doing something that will actually help. Instead of putting more and more anti-piracy measures in Office they have lowered the price to the equivalent of $29. Microsoft has tried similar tactics in the past, like when they sold Office to college students at a drastically [...]

I talked about the “Ultimate Steal” last September, the Ultimate Steal is an offer to college students with a valid .edu email address and a course load of at least 0.5 credits (although I’m not sure if they would actually be able to check how many classes you are taking, the .edu email address may [...]

65,535=100,000 in Excel 2007

Microsoft, Office 2 Comments »

According to Excel 2007, any equation that should result in 65,535 Excel 2007 will tell you that the answer is 100,000. I actually prefer 100,000 to 65,535, its an even number, it is easily divisible by 10, its a lot larger then 65,535. But, when I’m building complicated spreadsheets (which I don’t do) I think [...]

Microsoft, Office 1 Comment »

Microsoft has started “The Ultimate Steal” which is a way for students to get Microsoft Office on the cheap, $59.95 for Office Ultimate 2007 to be exact. This is a really smart idea, especially since most students will resort to piracy to get the software, but at $59.95 I think that they would be willing [...]

Google Adds StarOffice into Google Pack, and Who Cares?

Application, Downloads, Google, Office No Comments »

Recently there was a buzz around the blogosphere about Google adding StarOffice being added to the Google Pack. My question is: Who Cares? I don’t know anyone who downloads the Google pack and I don’t know why anyone would. Out of the 12 programs in the Google pack I would only suggest people use 4 [...]

Microsoft Works To Be Available Free, Ad-Supported

Microsoft, Office 1 Comment »

Microsoft will make Works available free with an ad-supported model. This is interesting to me, I think it is smart but I think they would be better off just giving it away for free without ads.
