Right?! It should read “Buy Parallels 16 today, get a surprise $800 subscription renewal bill in 12 months.”

I just checked the parallels website and it is quite funny.

First screen says "purchase a license from 79.99€".

Second screen says "purchase a license for 99.99€ or subscribe for a year for 79.99€".

Not everybody has the same definition of "purchase", it seems.

It's a deal until you have to enter multiple subscription models a year later.

Why can't we just own nice things these days?

I remember when deals and bundles weren't just gateway outlets for subscription services. The Mac ecosystem used to be so fun. Meh.
