How Adobe Defeated Me

adobe-adbe-logoI dislike subscription services and hate being committed to a monthly fee. I have resisted Adobe’s subscription-based business model for years. At work, I use an outdated version of Photoshop, and at home I have used various other image editing programs.

How did Adobe defeat me then? Adobe did it through my kids. That’s right. Adobe is playing dirty. My son signed up for a high school photography class, and to help him out I subscribed to Adobe Photoshop at home. Now, ever month I have a $10.74 charge appearing on my credit card. Thanks, Adobe.
