Microsoft reveals Office 2013 pricing starting at $100


Microsoft Office 2013 Pricing

Microsoft (MSFT) hasn’t set a firm release date for Office 2013 yet, but that doesn’t mean it can’t talk about pricing. According to ZDNet, subscription versions of Office 2013 will cost $100 per year for Office 365 Home Premium and $150 per year for Office 365 Small Business Premium. Office 365 includes Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access and can be installed on up to five computers. Office 365 Small Business Premium has everything Home Premium has plus Lync and InfoPath.

Users who prefer boxed retail versions of Office 2013 can choose from three different versions: Office Home & Student ($140), Office Home & Business ($220) and Office Professional ($400). Whereas Office Home & Student includes Word, Excel, Powerpoint and OneNote, Office Home & Business adds Outlook and Office Professional adds Publisher and Access.

As an incentive to skip the boxed version for the subscription, Office 365 Home Premium users will get 60 free Skype minutes per month and 20GB of SkyDrive storage, and Office 365 Small Business Premium users will get hosted Exchange with 25GB of mail and shared calendar storage as well as 10GB of SharePoint storage. Free HD video conferencing and screen sharing is also included in the latter deal.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 

Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…
