cloud access

I have a problem with companies jumping on the cloud bandwagon.  The problem is that about half of the US, and probably a higher percentage of the world, does not have access to high speed internet with no data limits.  It seems like most companies are pushing all of their new development towards the cloud and leaving users like myself behind.  I live in an area where the only internet access available is wireless with severe data limitations and extremely high cost.  The US really needs to do something about ensuring that everyone has access to high speed internet with no data limitations.  Until that happens jumping on the cloud bandwagon is leaving about half of your potential customers behind.

Photoshop Creative Cloud still runs on your desktop.  You can use file syncing and other cloud services, but don't have to.

Good to hear, and hopefully it will stay that way.  I know there are companies that are focusing on subscription services where the apps only run from the cloud or require updates that have to be downloaded.  As apps become more and more sophisticated they grow in size and therefore require large downloads that eat up your data allocation on the internet.

Personally I like to keep up with the latest technology and latest updates for apps that I use.  Unfortunately since I retired and moved to an area that does not have good internet access this has become a problem.
