You're assuming that the cheap, Chinese knockoffs and the crappy (probably Android) OS running on it will be mistaken for an Apple Watch?  Really?
You never really "own" your house.  There's a little thing called "property taxes" that you still have to pay.  My house is paid in full, yet I still get that bill.  Property taxes (especially where I live in SF) is practically a never-ending mortgage payment for many.So rent or own?  You're still paying to someone.
The new Lightroom is available as a standalone.  $149. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1140015-REG/adobe_65237402_photoshop_lightroom_6_download.html
A brand-new user license (not upgrade, or student edition) was going to run me $1,500.00.  I gave up trying to find someone that could get it for me at some discount, or buying some outdated version off of craigslist.  So it was going to cost a penny.  $50/mo is for the entire suite.  $10/mo is for PS and LR which is what most people will use.  It's a deal.Even if LR could be had for for $200... that's still a couple years, and most folks will rinse-and-repeat and buy the...
Oh please.. get off your milk carton Mr. Preacher.They do not hold your work or data hostage.  That's flat-out nonsense propaganda you're making up.  I should know.  My data and files all reside on my workstation.  I don't have to save my work to their cloud service.  Nice of you to "conveniently" leave that part out.Even if I stop paying for the subscription, Photoshop continues to work, it just reverts to read-only so my files still work.So get off your "Slavery"...
Photoshop was too expensive for me to buy outright a couple years back.  I don't recall the amount but $1,500+ was what I was looking at.  At $10/mo it would take 13-14 years to pay that.  Lightroom is just a scaled-back version of PS that's geared mainly to photography.  I use both packages constantly.  That area changes a lot over time so yeah, I still think it's a deal.  I don't want to be "stuck" with an old version of PS or LR that doesn't have support for a new lens...
 I had your exact same mentality six months ago.  Then I tried it after Apple discontinued Aperture and I became a believer of the concept.  When it comes to very expensive software like Photoshop, having both PS and LR together for $9/mo was a no brainer in the long term.  It would take 10+ years for me to pay the amount for one license of Photoshop, if not longer.  This way, I'm always current.  The math just worked better for me.  For heavy-duty applications like PS,...
Ya know... I can always count on you to pretty much say anything and everything in a thread.  Most of the time, I find your direct and blunt posts as entertaining.  This is one time... and I think the first from me... where I/we kindly ask for you to take a chill-pill buddy.  I think you're the only person that is getting bent out of shape that Apple is doing this with A-1 celebrities and for some reason, you're getting your tighty-whities in a wedgie.  This isn't any...
"Trust you"?  I wouldn't trust some anonymous Internet person any more than I would trust a Fandroid to speak the truth.Post a substantiated proof that they are being paid, or take a hike.
No... because then Apple would count them as "Sold". :)
