False Alarm! Office 365 Preview Doesn’t Expire Yet

I posted a couple of days ago of the potential that Office 365 preview that Microsoft launched last summer would expire today. However, it appears that we had a false alarm! A news reporter of, John Callaham, noted that different people were seeing different expiration dates for Office 365 preview. Newoin, hence, contacted Microsoft about the issue. Microsoft had this to say:

Your trial will not expire but in fact renew automatically. However, the trial will still expire 60 days after the next version of Office becomes available…..people who see the notification in their billing section will not have to reset anything, it will be done automatically. If people have not checked the billing site until now then they wouldn’t have known that something similar has happened in previous months.

I apologize for any inconvenience you may have had. You can still continue to use Office 365 preview or download a trial version of Office 2013 Professional Plus for free until the final version of Office 2013 and Office 365 ships.

Apple Increasing Song Previews To 90 Seconds

iTunes Logo

Two months ago, there were rumors that Apple would be doubling the length of song previews in iTunes, which would benefit users and potentially lead to more sales. Today, Apple announced that they would be tripling the length of the previews to 90 seconds, which is more than enough time to get a good feel for a song, and aid in your purchasing decision.

`We are pleased to let you know that we are preparing to increase the length of music previews from 30 seconds to 90 seconds on the iTunes Store in the United States. We believe that giving potential customers more time to listen to your music will lead to more purchases.`

The change should be happening “very soon”, and may coincide with iOS 4.2’s release. (You know Apple, they like to keep things tidy!) There’s no word on when (or if) the change will be made in other countries, but hopefully Apple is working on it.
