Microsoft Testing Software ‘Locker’

Microsoft on Wednesday rolled out a beta version of its new “digital locker” technology, which will be integrated into an upcoming version of the Windows Marketplace Web site. The digital locker enables users to purchase and download software from a variety of different vendors directly through Microsoft.

The digital locker was designed to give customers a single page for controlling their personal information and purchase history, allowing them to instantly see what software licenses they own. Microsoft is offering programs from the libraries of Digital River, eSellerate, Handango and Kagi, but will not support independent ISVs. Credit card charges will be handled by Microsoft’s delivery partners, the company said.
