We also call that "off-the-shelf" software or "plug-n-play" hardware. There seems to be a movement from software installed on the work station/home computer (shrink-wrapped) to the application service provider (ASP) method, where users run software that sits a remote server and save their files, rather than buying the software.

In the February 7 Digest, pv asked for a definition of "shrink-wrapped
package" and Steve Hudson provided one definition. There is at least one
additional definition: A software product that is meant to be installed
and used by the end user without technical support--as opposed to a
customized solution that may use standard components knit together with
special code.
