Microsoft cuts price of OneNote
Microsoft is reducing the price of One Note from US$199 to US$99. There will be similar price reductions for volume pricing whereas the academic price of $49 will remain as is. Since One Note is a must-have for Tablet PCs, this is good news. The bigger question, of course, is Microsoft's historic tendency to split off parts of Office and sell them at increasung extra cost once the competition has been eliminated. Still, at US$99, One Note is a must-have for any Tablet PC. -- Posted Monday, August 2, 2004 by chb
