Software giant targets piracy
Mon, 9 September 2013
Microsoft Cambodia has appointed Thakral Cambodia Industries Limited as its second authorised software distributor in the country, a move intended to help the computer giantâ€™s local operation combat the rampant use of pirated software.
Thakral, one of the largest distributors of IT products in Cambodia (its partners include HP and Toshiba), will join Winsoft, the first and only Microsoft licensee since the company entered the local market in 2008.
â€œWe aim to offer to our resellers the complete Microsoft product portfolio and value-added services at competitive pricing and extensive pre- and post-sales support,â€ Ashish Fitkariwala, head of business operations for Thakral Cambodia, said.

San Francisco - Microsoft is pulling the plug on Hotmail, one of the early leaders in web-based email, and plans to transition the service's more than 350 million users to a new email service called Outlook.com, the software giant announced Tuesday.
The new service will, as its name suggests, tie in with the Microsoft email program of the same name that is part of the companyâ€™s popular Office suite of business software.
Microsoft touted the new system as the biggest change in web-based email since the introduction of Hotmail in 1996. Microsoft bought the company a year later for an estimated 400 million dollars.

technology called â€œSuper Wi-Fiâ€ that uses the frequency spectrum between television channels called â€œwhite spacesâ€ could be a game-changing force in how people connect to the internet, especially in places like Cambodia.
The technology, which requires specialised equipment costing about US$2,000 for a base station would enable a fibre-optic line to connect with an antenna and create internet connectivity for users to connect wirelessly up to 20 kilometres away.
