I tried. I really did. But at the final hour, muscle memory won out over frugality and semi-righteous indignation. Even though I promised myself I wouldn't, I signed up for yet another year of Creative Cloud. I have been cranky ever since Adobe moved Creative Cloud to mandatory subscription.

Adobe's developers put in a tremendous amount of work, and the yearly (or monthly) annuity helps make sure the mission-critical software I use stays available and up-to-date.Also: Adobe launches AI Assist, weaves it through analytics, clouds Creative cloud's usage limitations What peeves me to no end are the use shackles that come with Creative Cloud. Most cloud applications allow you to use them on whatever devices you have. While the machine count allowances of most cloud applications aren't unlimited, they might as well be.

Some of these tools, like the 30-day OneDrive backup feature Files Restore, were brought over from the Business version to Home and Personal Office 365. The suite can now detect ransomware attacks and guide users through the recovery process, which pinpoints the time and date of the incident and restores OneDrive to its state before that.The tools also cover sharing files between users, too. You can now set and require a password to access a shared OneDrive file or folder, which protects it if the link to the document is inadvertently forwarded. Additionally, starting later in 2018, links clicked on in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint will be checked in real-time to find whether the destination website will likely download malware or be part of a phishing scam.The new security features extend to outgoing messages. Outlook.com now offers end-to-end email encryption, which includes security mechanisms on the recipient's end. If they aren't opening the message in Outlook's browser login, … [Read more...] about Microsoft adds file protection and email encryption to Office 365
