Microsoft is making a substantial move to the cloud with Office365 — think Exchange and Word, but only existing in the cloud — whose open beta was just launched worldwide earlier this week.

In a press conference in Singapore yesterday, Microsoft announced that they would be launching Office365 beta for business customers in Singapore through telco StarHub.

As a syndication partner, StarHub is responsible for guaranteeing service quality to business customers locally through SLAs, for example, up to 99.99 percent network uptime.

$143 MS Office 2007 – is it really a discount?

8 Aug

Microsoft Singapore is giving a 43 per cent discount on Office 2007 Home and Student edition so you can now get it for $143. The software giant issued a press release on this hailing it as a special 43rd National Day discount for Singapore.

But I checked online and Microsoft’s website shows it is going for US$109. So is there really a special discount for Singapore’s birthday? Or is it just a National Day marketing gimmick to commemorate worldwide pric cuts on MS Office?
