You don’t own it, you own a license to use it.
Umm ok. I often have conversations like this with my 10 year old. He likes to play on exact wording. You are correct. To all the apps I don’t subscribe to, I “own” a license and not the actual app or the company that makes it.

I’ll make sure I stand in the shower, because if I jump in the shower, I might hurt myself.

What shall we talk about next, catching my fridge because it’s “running”.

Other than Parallels, the only other thing I would find maybe useful is 1Password.

I own the 1Password app. Amazing. But I own it. You don’t have to subscribe. Integrates with iPhone and Mac beautifully. Especially with FaceID on iPhone and TouchID on MacBook Pro.
Also, the sub is only 2.99/mo (36/year), so unless that 60 is for 2 years...

Subscription paradise. It must be so that lots of subscribe to software, otherwise this trend would have stopped by now.
but 60 dollars a year for 1Password? No thanks.
this. They’ve marketed this in such a way it would be very easy to miss most are subs based amongst all the claims of huge savings.

steer well clear IMO

it’s no different these days. You either pay it month to month/yearly or upgrading... you’re just leasing it.
Excellent. Thanks for the morning humor article. I always need a little something extra to ground my day in comparison to the lunacy out there. That hit the nail on the head.

/thanks for playing/
