Well if you are a Photoshop user there are some changes happening that you might want to be aware of. Adobe has decided to bet the farm that the future lies in digital distribution and subscriptions.
Let me explain, as of May 6, 2013, you will still be able to buy CS6 but it will be only from a 3rd party reseller. You are no longer able to download Photoshop (or any other Adobe product except for Lightroom) and a license to use CS6 from the Adobe website. Adobe has not said when it will stop selling CS6 all together but my suspicion is that as soon as current stock is sold there will be no more copies available at the local Best Buy.
The fact that the new edition of Photoshop and other Adobe products will out in June only confirms my suspicion. So how do you get Photoshop and you other favorite Adobe products, well you get them from Creative Cloud.
Creative Cloud is Adobe’s subscription service that they released just over a year ago and is how Adobe is planning on getting all of its tools in to the hands of designers, photographers, videographers, web developers and audio professionals.
In 1979 Bob Marley wrote these words, lyrics in perhaps his best song, Redemption Song.
“Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our mind”
Those words were taken from a speech given by Marcus Garvey in 1937 the full quote from the speech was:
“We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery because whilst others might free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind. Mind is your only ruler, sovereign. The man who is not able to develop and use his mind is bound to be the slave of the other man who uses his mind…”
Although these words spoken 75 years ago, and in reference to a somewhat different struggle I believe they still are relevant today, perhaps more so.
Readers of this site will be familiar with Brendon Burchard, as I have written about him many times before. If you want to get an idea of who he is, check out this post Brendon Burchard – Expert Academy Elite Online it will give you an idea as to who Brendon is and what he does.
But for right now I have a great offer for you!!
Brendon Burchard is at it again. He’s GIVING AWAY hardcover copies of his new book. Unfortunately, this promotion is done, Brendon gave away thousands of books. The good news is you can still buy the book at Amazon. (Canadians click here for Amazon.ca)
His new book is called “The Charge: Activating the 10 Human Drives that Make You Feel Alive”. Before you buy the book you can preview a video on the 10 Human Drives below.
This video making the rounds on You Tube certainly implies that President Obama’s policies are to blame for much of the economic turmoil in the States.
The climate change true believers will no doubt dismiss this video without a thought, even though, there is growing evidence that man made climate change is bullshit.
This week, in an interview with mnsbc.com, James Lovelock the godfather of global warming stated that “The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing,”
Lovelock is one of the world’s most honoured scientists and environmentalists. He went on to say “We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books — mine included — because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened. The climate is doing its usual tricks. There’s nothing much really happening yet…The world has not warmed up very much since the millennium. Twelve years is a reasonable time … it (the temperature) has stayed almost constant, whereas it should have been rising.”
