San Francisco -- International Data Group's PC World
and Office Depot announced an extensive alliance Tuesday that begins with the magazine's April issue. Office Depot will use excerpted PC World

will become the only publication to be distributed in Office Depot's more than 680 retail stores in the U.S.
