UK's Time to start downloading software in-store

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "Time Computers will test an in-store downloading and burning software replication system in three
stores over the next three months. Following the trial period, the company will decide whether to roll it
out to its entire retail network.

The SoftWide distribution system, from Tribeka Ltd, provides a catalogue of "thousands of different
software titles," which customers can browse and choose. The selection is then pressed onto CD
while the manual and CD cover are printed. Time believes the whole process will take less than 10
minutes."
