CommerceOne touts new procurement solution

Flushed with the success of its own recently launched content subscription service, RealNetworks said Tuesday that it is offering content providers the ability to create their own managed subscription services based on the Real platform.

The Seattle, Washington, company's new service will be delivered through the Real Broadcast Network (RBN), and offers companies the ability to create an e-commerce model around their content. The service was designed around Real's own RealOne SuperPass content subscription service, which launched in March.

RBN Managed Subscription Service offers companies customer registration and subscriber management, payment processing and billing systems, user report accounting, customer service and back-end hosting through the Real Broadcast Network. With the managed subscription service, content companies have the ability to drum up revenue through pay-per-view, rental or subscription models, Real said.

A handful of companies have already adopted the service, including Sony Pictures Digital Entertainment Inc. which is launching Soap City Radio through its SoapCity.com property, offering soap opera fans on-demand audio episodes streamed over the Internet, Real said.

The company did not immediately disclose pricing for the managed subscription service.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
