I pay a fair amount every year as a subscription to Adobe’s “Creative Cloud” services. I’m working on several projects that need eps editing (Illustrator), photo editing (Photoshop), and audio editing (Audition, a vastly underrated product). All of this runs on my Macbook Pro. And I have been happy. Until Thursday, April 20. My workflow is pretty straightforward. I write …

… the government is using Apple to try to set a legal precedent. If correct, this represents yet another waste of taxpayer money to harass one of the country’s most successful companies.
