This was a Silly(but fun) article dpreview. What was the deciding factor that made it post worthy?

Blaklynx01: Has anybody considered how rent-a-software (if that is THE future of all software) can impact your use of your PC/laptop/pad, etc? And maybe your life?

You rent software ABCXYZ for $xxx per month. Now you're unemployed. What luxuries do you give up? Coffee at Starbucks? (it's only two a month, right?) Chocolate? Beer? Wine? If unemployment gets severe, then what?

Imagine giving up your subscription(s) one by one like a monthly magazine. Potentially, you can't use the PC at all.

Some say "outright cost more than renting"... but you know what, I see high value in controlling my assets rather than be dictated to by companies that don't give a sh*t if you're employed or not. Try asking for 'extra time' or 'grace' if you're out of work. God forbid you don't end up with a severe injury and cannot work and money is short.

If you own it, employed or unemployed, you can still use it. If you think renting is the best, then good luck to you.

I'd rather my PC doesn't become a boat anchor.

Good points... I agree with them. But the sheer amount of $ Adobe has made points to the fact that pretty much everyone else could care less about your arguments. Rightly or wrongly, people absolutely love the subscription model with its low monthly costs. Nobody cares if someone else is out of work; that doesn't go into their decision making process.

I have CS5. It will always work in a VM if needed. And I have DXO. So I have no need for CC. The vast, vast, vast majority of people obviously don't want to do this. That's the way it is.

newe: The markets and end users have spoken...they love the direction Adobe has taken and are obviously in love with the cloud/subscription method. The evidence is in, no denying it any more. I don't use CC, so don't shoot the messenger. The reality is that this business model is working for end users and investors. Some of us may all not like it, but we are a very, very tiny minority it seems.

The option people have is to drop PS all together...some say better the devil you know. And that is true, but it is also a function of laziness. If you don't want to spend the time to learn something new, then don't complain. I learned DxO...so no need for CC updates for me. Guess people don't want to learn anymore. Whether or not you agree with this doesn't matter. What matters is the Adobe has done it's market intelligence perfectly....just perfectly. We can't say anything otherwise as the numbers just don't bear that out.

newe: The numbers are amazing. Depsite all versions of CC being cracked, the relatively low monthly price has made Adobe a literal ton of money despite piracy. I'm still on CS5 and will never have a need for CC. Despite the few on this forum, including me, who don't like the software rental business, everyone else obviously likes it. Hate to say it, but maybe I should try CC to see what the fuss is about. Adobe has obviously done their research. I'm sure they know the inflection point for prices increases whereby they will lose customers, so watch for prices to increase to that point. In a perverse why I've got to hand it to them...Adobe most certainly has done it's homework.

Is it true that you must sync images? Can you turn that off?

GreenPig: Like many users, I don't have over 12GB so I wont see the benefit anyway.

I tried to get the update but my Adobe CC login is failing. Maybe their servers need a bit more memory?

Maybe they have been hacked.

Relaxed: I certainly understand his approach- after all, sometimes good enough is all that you need.

A few months ago I went on a short trip, and decided to ONLY take my iPhone X. However, I had left unknowing that my LX100 was still packed in my day bag, from prior travel. I found it the next day.

3 days in, I had made the unfathomable decision of actually shooting a few snaps with the LX100, then compared that to my iPhone snaps. I haven't shot anything important on my iPhone since.

"It's a weight off ones shoulders when you stop obsessing about the things that don't matter in may cases."

This is so true. For good or bad, people just don't care about photography as much as they used to. Who knows where this will lead...

Every trip I have ever been on I have needed to be able to change the focal length. for this reason alone camera phones are NOT "good enough."

For every sporting event my kids are at I enjoy zoom and fast autofocus...yet another reason why camera phones are NOT "good enough." Didn't see any iPhone "pros" and the Superbowl ;-)

I also regularly print 11x14 and 13x19...hmm, another reason why camera phones are NOT "good enough."

If you are just walking around and just snapping for fun (yes I do that too), then yah, camera phones are cool; but I'll always have my "real camera" with me for when I need something that isn't just "good enough."

Wish I had one of these way back on my wedding night!

Is it waterproof?

Edgar_in_Indy: I'm very impressed. The iPhone is a great camera for people who don't care about image quality, and probably don't even know what the term means.

This is so true, and probably encompasses 99% of shooters now. Kids these days will never, ever hold a "real" camera, they could care less.

I wonder if the removable media these pictures are on will suddenly be lost....
