Re: Cloud Renewal

The rep on the phone told me that Adobe shuts it off if the renewal is withdrawn, so it shouldn't suddenly stop working because the Internet is down for a day. Because they automatically charge your credit card, they can assume that the renewal is perpetual. I wonder what happens when you forget to tell them the bank sent a new card and the old one is no longer valid?

Al likely scenario is to go on vacation where there will be no Internet access. Start the vacation a day before renewal and be gone 2-3 weeks. I wonder if Photoshop will time out after some grace period or if it will keep working as the rep suggested.

Doesn't matter to me. The whole cloud thing is just a way to squeeze more money out of  customers. The only customers who come out ahead, and not by all that much, are those who would normally update every new edition anyway. Those of us who would wait for that third new edition before updating would end up paying much more, which is what Adobe wants. I read this as greed, greed, and greed. Seems obvious.
