Dell Download Store Welcomes In Microsoft Apps
Wares such as Word, Excel and Outlook are now available from the Dell Download Store, though there's no word on just how far the expansion will go. Sadly, it seems as if the prices aren't the best, with Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 listed at $129.99. In case you're wondering, this software is available in-box at various websites for far less.
Still, this is more a symbol of our changing world than anything else. Before long, we suspect downloading new applications from digital stores will become as common, if not more common than going to the store for a boxed copy. Of course, we need those broadband speeds to keep up in order to make it feasible, but that shouldn't be too much to ask.
