James Pilcher: This is the future with Adobe and any other company that forces you to use "the cloud" in any fashion. Can you say "Office 365?"

Oh, and don't think that Lightroom is going to remain separate from Creative Cloud all that long.

I like Adobe's products, I no longer care for it's business practices and policies.

Same way with Adobe PS & LR. Haven't had a problem during this "outage"

rrr_hhh: It is interesting these continual extensions of the 9.99$ Photographers' deal :
What this tells me is that they didn't reach their subscription goal.

I for one didn't subscribe. Here in Switzerland, even after our VAT deduction, we still have to pay 40% more than US customers. I'm definitely fed up with Adobe. I own PSCS6 plus LR5 and won't get into CC.

I'm investing in other products like Capture One and DXO. i will see what to do when i can no more use CS6.

They will be lucky to keep those rates. Notice the price of upgrade is what the current price is. What will that be? http://www.adobe.com/store/en_us/popup/offer/ccm_photoshop_app_offer.html

backayonder: If you are happy with Adobe Cloud that is fine by me and if you are happy with CS3, 5,6 etc that is all so fine by me too.

I am just wondering from a photographers point of view what benefits the latest Photoshop has. Surely for a photographer Photoshop peaked many versions ago.

Can be done in LR4.

Google+ hasn't displayed properly for me in weeks. Unusable.

On Nokia sells its headquarters post (6 comments in total)

I seem to remember another company that released an incredible product only on ATT. How did that turn out? Love the 920 that replaced my iPhone.

Mike604: Like the Bible says pride comes before a fall. Nokia/Microsoft together are a sinking ship. With Steve ballet @ the wheel, no wonder they are sinking. Nokia raised the bar, yes but did not blow anything away. A great camera in an outdated OS and low class hardware doesn't work, period. Adios Amigo.

I have a Lumia 920. Switched from iPhone. This whole weight BS given to this phone is exactly that. BullSh*t. Put an iPhone in a protective case. Bam! Same weight as 920. Guess what the 920 doesn't need a case. Love this phone.

You send me to Flickr and I will not look at your images. Horrible viewer experience.

mick232: You people seem to ignore a couple of things:

1. there is more than one workaround available (don't open TIF files from untrusted sources, scan TIF file with virus scanner)

2. fixing a bug in old software is more expensive by orders of magnitude than in upcoming or current software; even if the fix is a one-liner, the software has to be re-built, re-tested, re-released. Don't underestimate the effort needed for all these steps. These processes have to be re-run for the fix whereas with software currently being developed they run anyway.

That is why any software company will assess the severity of a bug. No company will fix any bug, even if it is a security issue. That's just how it is and all your rants are not going to change it.

Mick... Tool...
