One of Microsoft's bread-and-butter product offerings that generates much of the company's income is its Office productivity suite. Microsoft is believed to be launching the next generation of Office called office 2013 in the next few weeks. Some details on pricing have surfaced that show Microsoft is going to be pushing people towards subscriptions rather than outright purchasing of the software.
A slide Microsoft shared with partners this week to get them ready for the launch of the software has now turned up showing expected pricing. The online subscription Office 365 will cost students $3.30 per month. The Office 365 Home Premium will sell for $8.33 per month, the Small Business Premium edition will be $12.50 per month, midsize businesses will pay $15 per month, and large enterprise and government customers will pay $20 per month.
You will be able to outright purchase Office 2013 with the home and student version selling for $139. The Office Home and Business version sell for $219, standard version of Office 2013 will cost $369, and the Professional Plus version will sell for $499. Office has never been cheap so you shouldn't be shocked at how expensive some of these versions are.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
