[Phil Hoppes] "Not a reason at all to not use Adobe or any other software but a reminder that using only a single, easy password is like playing with fire."

I disagree. This incident clarifies yet another reason why the subscription model is not a good thing. As Bill pointed out, having to have a constantly current card on file for reoccurring monthly charges exposes you to a much higher level of potential fraud. Bill might be right about using prepaid cards for things like this. Sounds like a good strategy.

On another note, Adobe called me the other day about why I haven't gone to CC. He was practically begging me to join. I've never seen a company so desperate. They got an earful from me. I went from A-Z on why I won't use CC. I could tell he's heard this many times. He insisted that ALL companies would be going to a subscription model. I said "based on what evidence"? I contended that the whole industry was watching Adobe "go out on point", and that I was convinced that anybody who might have been considering it, has wisely backed away from it.
