The Adobe CEO kept referring to the "creative cloud" as the future. What's the difference between tomorrow's "creative cloud" and (for lack of a better descriptor) today's "non-creative cloud"? Besides pricing.

Ahh . . . thanks Keith. So I guess Adobe is hoping that people will rent (thus paying more over the long haul.) And just like paying rent for an apartment, one never builds up equity, or owns the apartment outright, and the landlord (AKA Adobe) can raise the rent whenever he wants and for however much he wants.
