Gismodo Article - 'Subscription Expired'
If ever there was a better time to detox from life's 'subscription' based service model addiction now may be the right time. When I read this article it made me realise why I stay with open source services and software when everyone else (seemingly anyway) seem in a hurry to sign up to proprietary solutions just to have the 'latest' and 'coolest' tool to boast about.
It's no secret that the world's corporate leaders are hungry for this model for future growth. I must admit... I'm in the minority here but someone will always 'own' the things that you 'rent' or rely on to do you job and that reminds me that the balance is already tipped 'OUT' of my favour. As the corporates become greater the choice for the rest of us becomes smaller.
Enjoy this excellent article...
