Even if the cloud was free... I still wouldn't want it

If Adobe charged maybe, $ 10 per month, then millions would sign on and there would be no piracy of any kind.

Maybe I'm unique.... but even if they gave away cloud service for free, I still wouldn't want it.

I like having my OWN files on my OWN hard drive.

I like ACTUALLY OWNING things I paid for or created myself.

This cloud thing is like renting a storage space. When you stop making payments you lose your property.  Then you end up with your stuff being auctioned off on some reality show!

Every single one of these scams has some fine print in it that says "prices and terms subject to change." What happens when they decide to raise that $50 a month to $100 a month?
