Microsoft’s new 365 subscription gets you Office on one Mac or PC & tablet for $69/year

Office-devices-Microsoft

Microsoft is launching a cheaper ‘Personal’ Office 365 subscription today that will give you access to the cloud services and mobile apps for $69/year or $6.99/month opposed to the $99/year Home subscription. The new Personal subscription only provides access for one Mac (or PC) and iPad (or tablet) instead of the 5 PC or Macs and 5 tablets you get with a Home subscription.

You might want to hold off on the new subscription, however, as Amazon is currently selling the full Home subscription for just $63 (37% off). That’s cheaper than the new $69 Personal plan, but it’s possible Microsoft could soon end that discount and change prices on Amazon now that the new Personal subscription is launching.

1password-deal-ios-app

Now just days after the 50% off iPassword for Mac sale ended, developer AgileBits is dropping half off both the OS X and iOS versions of its popular password security app in the aftermath of the massive Heartbleed bug. As Apple has confirmed that none of its software or services are susceptible to the vulnerability, Agile has now updated the 1Password listing on both the Mac App Store and App Store to reflect the 50% discount.

1Password on iOS is available today for $9 down from its usual $18 and the Mac version drops is just $25 down from $50. Both versions rarely see discounts this deep, the Mac version is the lowest we’ve seen outside of special bundle deals and launch pricing and the iOS version is within a dollar of the lowest we’ve ever seen it.

The 9to5Mac team loves this app for its simplicity, ease of use and rock solid security. 1Password acts as a vault for all of your website logins, credit card information and other confidential data. Features:

  • Create strong, unique passwords for every site
  • Secure your data behind a single Master Password
  • Protect yourself with tamper-proof Authenticated 256-bit AES Encryption
  • Auto-Lock keeps your data protected even if your Mac is lost or stolen
  • Use Security Audit to make your passwords stronger

Mac: 1Password: $25 (Reg. $50)
