A few days ago, the Canadian retailer Future Shop leaked news that Microsoft will start to launch Office 2013 on January 29th. Now this piece of news has been confirmed by Microsoft. Based on the news from Microsoft-News, the company has launched a teaser website, from which we can see a slogan clearly: "Coming January 29th. More time to do the things you want". It's also confirmed that an event will be held in Bryant Park, New York City tomorrow.

Besides regular versions, Microsoft also launches a service named Office 365, which allows user to pay by year or by month. For instance, the Office 365 Home Premium includes the following Office tools: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Access and Publisher. This suite provides one-year license for up to 5 computers. Moreover, the company provides 60 minutes of Skype world calling per month and 20 GB of additional SkyDrive storage. User needs to pay $8.33 / month or $99.99 / year for the service. 

For myself, perhaps I'll upgrade my Office 2010 to the newest version in a couple of weeks. Also hope to learn some new features of the PowerPoint 2013 and share new tutorials with you!
