Adobe is deactivating all accounts in Venezuela.
"The cloud is the future" my ass.
@R10T Remember when you could buy and sell used software .. when it came in a box, with a license number?
@djsumdog Good old days.
@R10T Does this apply to gmail, amazon, apple accounts etc too?!
@aran Perhaps. There wasn't a statement yet and the deadline seems to be the 2019-10-28. Maybe other provider will follow:
"When will I lose access to my Adobe accounts and content?
You have until October 28, 2019 to download any content that you have stored in your Adobe account. After this date your account will be deactivated."
@R10T more proof that their entire business model is to make you put shit on their computers and then holding it hostage for money...
@R10T Not "that kind" of cloud anyway...
@elpanzer What do you mean exactly?
@R10T Not that kind of GAFAM + Adobe cloud which can shut down access to any / all third country based users, based on an executive order... From the US!
@R10T cloud is the future; so is acid rain.
@R10T I'm guessing gimp is going to become more popular in Venezuela.
@R10T seen that comin'.
@R10T Silicon Valley is the new police.
@R10T The big problem isn’t that they loose access to the software. It’s all the data stored in proprietary file formats that don’t work with other software that’s the main problem.
