Shelly Palmer Radio Report – October 11, 2012

After years of mostly minor changes in the way they operate, Microsoft is about to rock the boat big time beginning later this month. They’re releasing Windows 8, a brand new OS with a steep learning curve. They’re continuing their mobile push with the launch of the Microsoft Surface tablets on October 26, and a new wave of Windows phones will launch early next month. But perhaps the biggest change of all will be in Office 2013, which for the first time will be subscription-based software. On Wednesday, it was rumored that Office 2013 would be making its way onto Android and iOS in March – helping keep you connected and productive wherever you are – but Microsoft quickly squashed that rumor. I wouldn’t be surprised, though, if the report turns out to be mostly true; expanding a lucrative, subscription-based distribution model of their most prominent software to an established user base numbering in the tens of millions just makes smart business sense to me.
