The easiest solution is simply never download any sketchy apps from unknown sources.
Are you kidding? There are no light switches. Everything is controlled by Siri. /s
So did your corporation decide to purchase extended support in case of security vulnerabilities? Office 2007 mainstream support ended in 2012. To me your company's continued use of 2007 seems more like an IT upgrade nightmare and they postponed doing it rather than a "it just works, why fix it" scenario. I know that is often the case at our IT department. Fortunately I have my own IT guys because our department is mostly Mac. Those Windows IT guys won't touch a Mac.
Definitely true, except in today's fast paced collaboration environment, you need to be able to share files. This was always a problem before with CS. We didn't usually rush to upgrade as soon as a new version came out. We would wait until we received a file that we couldn't open, which unfortunately, usually didn't take that long. To me, it was just unprofessional to ask the sender to save it to a lower version. When you are working as a design industry professional, you...
What does this mean? If Lee's stake in Beats was drawn down to nothing prior to the Apple buyout, how can he be owed anything?
Probably, but that doesn't seem to be the main thrust of your rant. You have issues with Adobe and your own misfortune a lot more than you have issues with my elitist attitude. Just to clarify, I did not call you a cheapskate, that is, unless you were using pirated software. As a small freelancer you should be happy that Adobe CC is nearly impossible to pirate because now honest designers are on a level playing field and not being unfairly competed against by illegal...
Perhaps you and your friends don't use email so much and prefer iMessage or whatever and you are correct that consumer email traffic is expected to decrease slightly over the next few years. On the other hand business email traffic and business accounts are dramatically increasing every year. Personally I dislike Apple Mail, especially on iOS. Couple main complaints off the top of my head. I think they should put the trash can on the side of the bottom menu. I can't tell...
Adobe CC is for professionals who make a living using the products. Adobe does not care about casual users or hobbyists. It has always been that way. A decade ago, every cheapskate had a bootleg copy. Now, with CC, only professionals who can afford the subscription can use the software and for that I am very grateful. We have nine offices worldwide and we are standardized on Adobe CC which facilitates a very efficient work flow for us.
I think the main reason in the beginning is that Apple News is a custom format that has to be authored much like iBooks. Once the major publishers of news are on board with the proprietary format then they will have more diverse content. I think making the authoring software available to regular Apple users to develop their skills would open up some great employment opportunities at major news outlets just like being proficient in Adobe design apps will pretty much...
I think the idea is to empower women to write iOS and OS X apps for themselves or their employer, not recruiting them to work at Apple, but if they turn out to be talented enough that Apple hires them, you can be sure they will earn more money than working for just about any other tech company out there. Many small start ups currently employ male and maybe female programmers who are working for free just for the chance to make it big someday. The anti-poaching deals were...
