Adobe switching to subscription pricing model…

I ran across an article today (seen here) where Adobe is switching over completely to a subscription service for their Creative Suite programs (which will soon be referred to as Creative Cloud).

For me personally, this move would make it rather affordable and easier to access Adobe’s latest software for a monthly fee instead of having to fork out an exuberant amount of money all at once for a license…or obtaining the software through not so legit means…

Since I’m currently unemployed, paying a monthly subscription fee is somewhat out of my reach, but that can change. After all, I would like to use all the latest features as most of those who have the current software are doing.

Something to look forward to…

However, that’s not to say there aren’t any downsides to this…

The article states that Creative Cloud would have to communicate with a server on each use, which would mean an internet connection is needed. This isn’t necessarily a good thing, especially for those that travel and don’t have access to the internet. There will be versions of Creative Cloud available for those entities that can’t access the cloud, but it seems those versions would be geared towards schools, government or large companies.

All I’d like to know is if I can access the software without having to connect to the internet each time. If I’m going to be paying for a subscription, the least Adobe can do is give me access to the software even if a connection is not available. This I will need clarification on…so I will look into it…

At any rate, this move from Adobe has been met with mixed reaction. Some are in favor, some are not. The success of this move will be entirely dependent on those using the software, so it’ll be interesting to see if this will work or not.

I do not know if people really know how much I love Manchester United. I remember the first match I ever saw was a epic duel with Arsenal (which had the tunnel incident). I virtually knew nothing about soccer outside the goooalllllllllllllllll and David Beckham, little did I know that match would have a huge influence on me. Fast forward a few many years later, and I wake up at 5 am if I have to watch a game and read up on them everyday. And all this would not have been possible for the greatest manger of all time…Sir Alex Ferguson. 

You may be wondering what is the big deal of a manger retiring? Well let me break it down in one long sentence :26 years, 13 league titles, 2 Champions Leagues, the Cup Winners’ Cup, 5 FA Cups, 4 League Cups. Yes you read that right in 26 yrs in charge he was won everything twice over. But before the trophies, medals and glory there is one quote that started it all..

In 1986 he famously said “”knocking Liverpool off their f***ing perch..” was his priority and mission. When he said this you have to understand at the time..Liverpool was the dominant team in England and had 18 titles to United’s 7. It seemed like a pipe dream to be able to even comprehend winning a league title let alone 13 he eventually won. What is more amazing is in the style he did, in a attacking way that would throw caution to the wind and would fight into the last second of “Fergie time”. 

There is so much I want to say and will write in the coming days once I can fully accept this. But I leave you with a quote from the Manger,  Gafer, Sir Alex Ferguson or as i love to all him boss ” My greatest challenge is not what’s happening at the moment, my greatest challenge was knocking Liverpool right off their f***ing perch. And you can print that.”

 

Thank you Sir Alex for being the most amazing Manger, steward and servant the club has ever seen.

Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Explains Why He Hates Fat Chicks | Elite Daily.

Apparently Abercrombie & Fitch’s CEO Mike Jeffries only wants beautiful people to wear his clothes.  Peep this:

“In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids.  Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely. Those companies that are in trouble are trying to target everybody: young, old, fat, skinny. But then you become totally vanilla. You don’t alienate anybody, but you don’t excite anybody, either,”

A little judgemental?  Then again, when you look like this, I can see why you want beautiful people to wear your clothes.

HI, I'M GARY BUSEY
