Did anyone get a nice letter from Adobe.
Dear valued customer…
Ok, you sent this to my email, on an account where you have my full name, and you couldn’t even take the trouble to create a variable data field and be polite?
The rest of the letter is as follows:
At Adobe, we always strive to deliver more value to our customers, including much requested new features and capabilities, critical bug fixes and security updates. For these reasons we recommend all customers use the latest release of our Creative Cloud applications.
We have recently discontinued certain older versions of Creative Cloud applications and as a result, under the terms of our agreement, you are no longer licensed to use them. Based on your preference settings, we are not able to see if you are using any of the discontinued versions.
Please be aware that should you use the discontinued version(s), you may be at risk of potential claims of infringement by third parties.
Please upgrade to the latest version(s) using the instructions below. By upgrading, you will continue to receive all the value that Creative Cloud has to offer.
Thereafter follows a list of things they’ve discontinued.
Um… why wouldn’t they know what I have? It’s isn’t like they don’t have a little spy dashboard that is aware of items you have installed and when they need to be upgraded. It would be a simple matter to push a notice to that. I bet they can tell the 3rd parties who to go after for infringement claims though.
Or maybe they want to aggravate me more than their software already does.
I can’t retire fast enough to get away from these people.
