Interesting perspectives on subscriptions. I understand the resistance, but the Adobe products are updated and improved at a much more regular basis, introducing and making available features immediately. I do think it's time they make their subscriptions much more flexible, but as I've timidly began to engage in some of them, I've found that subscription-based software has many advantages in practice. I personally enjoy supporting the type of software I really use on a regular basis, and software based on a subscription model feels so much more secure over time and flexible to the changing hardware and operating system features. It's just that subscription supported developers can focus on features that are really useful to their customers even when they aren't flashy, and they don't feel pressure to make big marketable features and keep changes and benefits that could be useful today stored away as an important bullet for the big release, next year or later. Again, my problem with Adobe subscriptions is that the mostly want to sell the value of all their software together which is not the best for everyone.

Trackpad cursor mode looks like an interesting feature. I wonder if it's related to the various DF articles and pontifications about iPad needing more work on focus or mouse capabilities.

Glad to see the upfront information on the battery life and how disposable these are. It's an interesting value proposition that I was unaware of when gifting these to some people in their first year of sales. It felt like a con-job when the Tiles died and there was no way to charge them or cheaply swap batteries. At the same time, one of the people we gifted it to recovered an expensive item that covered the cost of all of them, I think. These should continue to improve but I hope they find a way to do it with less waste over time.
