Microsoft Inc (NASDAQ:MSFT): Current Price $27.95
Microsoft Inc (NASDAQ:MSFT) launches its Office 365 and Office 2013 today, with boxed copies of the new software in familiar packaging but with an all-important change – no DVDs inside. Instead, purchasers will get a product code that will allow them to download the software from the cloud. Another groundbreaking change from Microsoft is that the new software are subscription based instead of the payment of a one-time license amount. The subscribers can opt to pay monthly or annually. Freebies thrown in to make the change easier for consumers are 20 GB of free additional SkyDrive cloud storage and 60 minutes per month of Skype calls.
