Apple’s Press Release on their Newsroom:

Today, Office 365 is available for the first time on the Mac App Store, making it easier than ever for Mac users to download Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and the whole suite of Microsoft’s popular apps. Users can also purchase a subscription for Office 365 from within the apps, so they can get up and running instantly.

This was announced at WWDC in June last year. I wonder how much of a cut from the subscriptions is Apple getting from this.

My bet? Not a lot.

Coming across stories like this on Twitter is one of the most wonderful things about the Internet as we know it today.

Gedeon Maheux, writing for The Iconfactory:

Now you can advertise your app, website, product or service directly on Twitterrific’s expansive network of tech-savvy users for just $100 a month. For that price we guarantee 1,000 tap-throughs – not impressions but actual visits – to your App Store page or website. What’s more, we take care of creating the ad for you ourselves and even provide App Analytics for iOS or Google Analytics for websites.

Twitterrific is one of the most lovingly crafted apps out there, and the folks at The Iconfactory are a bunch of incredibly passionate folks. The ads in Twitterrific are actually something you want to see and work as refreshing change from the usually clutter spreading like a parasite across the web.

If you’re an app developer, you should go check out The Twitterrific Ad Network here.

The folks at Hoefler & Co. have just announced a major change coming to Web Fonts from H&Co.

For years, Cloud.typography has included any five fonts of your choosing, and the rest available to purchase. Today we’re making things a lot simpler, a lot more flexible, and a lot more valuable: every Cloud.typography subscription now includes access to our complete library of fonts to use on the web.

This is a phenomenal value being offered at just $99/year. The fonts that Hoefler & Co. offers are some of the most remarkable fonts available today, and to have access to the entire library of fonts to include in any of your websites, is great news for any designer and developer out there.

But that’s not all, there’s more good news further down in the post.

Whether you’re a Cloud.typography subscriber or not, now you can license any of our fonts for self-hosting, and download them as both woff and woff2 files.

I like that both these options are independent of each other, and that you can even buy a perpetual license to the exact font you want to self-host.
