Microsoft Office 2013 set to debut July 16th

Since Microsoft seems intent on revamping most of its major products this year, it shouldn’t be surprising that the company will soon take the wraps off a big update to its Microsoft Office suite, perhaps as early as Monday. According to USA Today, Microsoft will show new features on July 16th intended to “jazz up” its ubiquitous Office suite in preparation for the launch of Windows 8-based computers in October. As USA Today notes, the stakes are very high for Microsoft in maintaining its dominant position in the productivity software market, as Office revenues “accounted for $22.2 billion of Microsoft’s nearly $70 billion in fiscal 2011 revenue and $14.1 billion of operating income, by far the most of any unit.”
